Q. The database is telling me that I must pay to see the full-text. What should I do?

First of all, make sure that you always log in to the databases through the Library Database Page. That said, most of our databases are not entirely full-text, and the database vendors try to sell articles to which we have not paid for access.
We recommend that you never pay for articles. If there is an article in one database that you want but is not available in full-text, first check the full-text journal finder to see if the journal with your article is available in full-text from another database. Click here to view a tutorial on using the Full-Text Journal finder.
If the full-text journal finder indicates that the article is not available from any of the Library databases, you can request it through our InterLibrary Loan service. Most articles requested through ILL arrive in under a week and are delivered to you electronically.
