We do not have access to all available electronic articles. We only have access to articles in journals that we subscribe to.

First of all be sure to connect from a link on the Library website. If you're off campus you'll have to enter your bronco no. and library pin/password.

In your database search results look for the FindIt button in the citation for the article you want. FindIt should connect to the article if we have a subscription to the journal. Perhaps you found an article in a journal that we don't have electronically? In that case the FindIt menu should lead you to the catalog record for the location of print copies or to the Document Delivery form where you can submit a request for the article. If it's an older article (e.g., 70s, 80s) it might not be available electronically. And sometimes the older articles are available on the publishers website but our access starts with a later year. Technical glitches also occur - server problems for example. Sometimes if you wait a few minutes and try again you'll be successful.

If these suggestions don't help, please send the citation for the article you were trying to get. There are many reasons why you might not be able to get the article and sometimes we just have to check them out item by item.
