Q. I found a journal article in a database, but it’s not full-text. What do I do?

Answer

Follow these steps, in this order:

  1. Use the “Check Availability” link: Check Availability links are found in many of our databases. This will tell you if we have the article full-text in another database.
  2. The "Check Availability" link will open up a new tab in Primo. Primo shows you the links to the article in  by providing hyperlinks to the database(s)  will give you the full text. Primo indicates the year that database starts providing the full-text. Remember the Result list of your database search is still open in a separate tab in case you need to double-check the date). 
  3. If LHU Libraries has the print or microfilm version of the article,  Primo will tell you at the bottom of the screen. Holdings are grouped by year, so you will have read the dates carefully.
  4. If there are no full text holdings there will be a link for logging into ILLiad, our free service where you can request copies of articles. If your item is a book, you will see a link to EZ Borrow, our free service where you may request a book through Interlibrary loan.
  5. If you do not see the links for EZ Borrow or ILLiad, log into Primo (upper right corner) using your full @lockhaven.edu email address and password.
  6. For more information about creating an account for ILLiad, or using EZ Borrow, use this link to get to Interlibrary Loan Services, (ILLiad & EZ Borrow: http://library.lockhaven.edu/interlibrary).
