Not all of the articles indexed in our databases are available full-text. Don't worry though, because there are other ways to get them.
1. First, check BU Libraries search to see if we have a hardcopy
In many cases, we have a current subscription to the journal your article is in. Simply search for the journal in our BU Libraries Search catalog to find the call number. Then, check on the shelf at that call number location to find the correct volume and issue. Once you've located it, feel free to use it in library or scan the article you need.
2. If there is no copy at BU, place an interlibrary loan article request
If we don't own the journal, we can find another library that does and get a scan of your article. Simply go to "Interlibrary Loan Borrowing" on the "For Students" menu of the STH Library website. Log-in to ILLiad (our interlibrary loan program) with your password, make your free account, and choose "article request." Enter as much information as you can about the article and submit. You should receive an email when your PDF arrives in as little as 1-2 business days. The email will have a link back into the ILLiad program, and your article will be available there for download for 2 weeks. Questions? Check out our ILLiad tutorial here.
