If you have an article citation, follow the steps listed on this page to locate the full-text article.
Start with Step 1,if the article is not available electronically, try Steps 2 and 3.
Step 1: Full Text Finder (previously called the Journal Finder): Search the library's electronic journals for the article, so it can be immediately printed or saved.
Step 2: Catalog: Not available electronically? Search the catalog to see if the print journal is in the library.
(Davie students only. Distance students skip to Step 3)
Step 3: Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Article not available electronically or in print? Request the material from ILL (Free service)
From the HPD Library Homepage, use the Full-Text Finder to look for a specific journal in our electronic resources.
If the journal is available electronically, one or more resources will be listed.
ALWAYS check date ranges and embargoes (if any) listed next to the resource.
Check your citation and select the resource that contains that year.
Full-text availability dates will vary by resource.
Full text articles are not available during the embargo period. (blackout dates)
Example: an embargo of 7 months means no full text for the past 7 months.
IV. Browse for Article
1. Once you have selected a resource, click on the title.
2. The resource will not open directly to your article so browse to the correct year/volume/issue.
3. Once you select the correct year/volume/issue, you will see a list of articles for that specific issue. Browse the list until you find the article.
Every resource looks different, the screenshot below is just one example
Material not available in Nova's print and electronic resources can be requested from Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
This is a free service.
ILL will try to obtain the article from another library system somewhere in the United States.
This service can take several days.
