Read this first. Often the full text of the article will be immediately accessible in the database you search. Sometimes, however, the database only provides a citation (article title, journal name, year, etc.) for the article. If you have only a citation, determine if the library has the journal that contains the article you want by following the steps to find journals (see box to the right).
And remember that you can always reach out to me, the Communicology Librarian, David Beales. My contact info is on the left.
