How To Find Articles

Most of our databases offer full text articles, but when you run across something that isn't available in full text you need to check if we have access to it elsewhere. Here's how...

  1. Within the database, click the "Find It!" button.  We might have e-access through a different database.
  2. If we don't have it, you should have an option to order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Fill out the form and you will usually get it in a 2-3 days.

If you're off-campus, you will be prompted for your Willamette username & password.
