There are different methods of obtaining the full text of an article.
While searching PubMed
When searching PubMed through the link on the library’s website, you will see a purple “Locate at Darnall” icon in the citation if the library has the article. Click on the icon, and you will be taken to the article. If the library does not have the article, you may request an interlibrary loan (ILL) via email or directly through PubMed by the LoansomeDoc service.
While searching databases other than PubMed
In databases such as Ovid or CINAHL, the full text of articles is often included along with the citation. If, however, an article is not available, you will see the purple “Locate at Darnall” icon. Click on the icon. If the article is available in another database, you will be taken to the article. If it is not available in another database, you will be given the option to email an ILL request to the library.
When you want to retrieve a particular article
When you need ot retrieve a specific article, you must first determine if the library has the journal. To do this, click on the Journals tab on the website, which will take you to the library's A-Z journals title search. Search for the journal title. If the library has the journal, you will retrieve a link or links to the journal with dates of coverage. Follow a link and use the citation information to retrieve your article. If the library does not have the journal, please submit an ILL request.
