Accessing Full-Text

In many databases, full-text may be immediately available via a pdf or html page. 

If full-text is not directly available, look for the UC-eLinks button to check for full-text elsewhere OR to request through Interlibrary Loan.  Your UCMnetID functions as your library card number on the Request screen. 

If you have a citation and/or the UC-eLinks button is not available, use the appropriate Request form (#3) on the Interlibrary Loan page.
