Where is the Article?

If a database search tells you about an article but the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:

Integrated by the BC Libraries into many databases, "Find It" helps you get the article in one of three ways:

  1. If an article cited in one database is available in full text in another online source, there will be a direct link to the full article or, in a few cases, to the journal.
  2. If the journal in which an article appeared is available in hard copy in the BC Libraries, you can request a copy of it.  It will be sent to you as a PDF file.
  3. If the article is not available electronically or in hard copy at BC, there will be a link to Interlibrary Loan Request, which will bring up a form through which you can ask the Libraries to obtain the article for you (usually within 24 hours) from outside BC.
