How Do I?: Get Article(s) in Full-Text

Video and text directions to some of our FAQs

Text directions

If you see a PDF or HTML full-text link, click that. That will take you directly to the full text of the article. If not, click on the Find It @UD link next to your article.

Sometimes the Find It @UD   link will be on the article page. (Each database will look a bit different, but just locate the Find It @UD link and the directions after this will look the same.)

Find It works behind the scenes to connect all our databases and catalog. If we own full-text in any database it will Find It. If we do have full-text, click on the link that says View Full Text.

This should take you directly to the article. (If not, you may have to use the volume/issue/year/pages to get to the full-text.)

If we don't own the full-text of the article in any of our databases or in print, you can Request the Item through Interlibrary Loan. The blue box in the middle of the page is a good visual indication we don't own it.

From here, log in to Illiad using your UD username and password.

And then Submit the request using the button at the bottom of the page. Not sure how to retrieve the article after we get it for you? Check out the directions.
