This page answers two questions: "Where is the full article?" and "What if I can't find the full article online anywhere?"
What if you have found only a citation and abstract for an article, and you need the full article?
Your next step is to find out whether you can get the full article in another of the library's databases. To do that, use the Journal Finder. You can always find the link to Journal Finder on the Mundt Library homepage.
Journal Finder will tell you if the Mundt Library has access to the journal or magazine you need -- either 1) online in another database or 2) in print in the library.
HOW TO USE JOURNAL FINDER.
EXAMPLE 1-- I discover the following article while doing my research, but I have only this citation (not the full article):
Chapman, Harold. Toward Lung Regeneration.The New England Journal of Medicine 364,19 (May 12, 2011): 1867-1868.
The article is in the journal called The New England Journal of Medicine. With this information, I can go to Journal Finder and search for New England Journal of Medicine. If the title is found, Journal Finder indicates in which databases it's available and for which years.
When I search for New England Journal of Medicine, I get the following results in Journal Finder:
The New England journal of medicine (0028-4793)
from 09/19/1996 to 3 months ago in Discovery and ProQuest Research Library
from 1972-1977, 03/01/1981 to present in Dakota State University’s Print Holdings
By clicking on the link to Proquest Research Library, I get to a list of issues of New England Journal of Medicine and can select the May 12, 2011 issue. I can then find the specific article in that issue that I need in order to link to the full article.
NOTE: When linking into a database, you will be required to login with your library ID and password.

The article is in the journal called Respiratory Care. With this information, I can go to Journal Finder and search for Respiratory Care. If the title is found, Journal Finder indicates in which databases it's available and for which years.

Request "Interlibrary Loan" when you need materials (journal articles, books, etc.) that are not available in the Mundt Library and are not accessible online through the Library Catalog or through Journal Finder.
Interlibrary Loan is a service in which libraries borrow from and loan materials to other libraries.
Information about Interlibrary Loan may be found on the Interlibrary Loan webpage. You can also find the Interlibrary Loan webpage by using the "Services" dropdown link on the top of the library homepage.
