Getting the Article

How to get the article:

  1. Many databases have full text (either HTML or PDF) for articles you find.
  2. If full text is not available, click on green icon. It may offer a link to another database, the publisher site, the Atkins Library catalog, or to Interlibrary Loan.
  3. If the UNC Charlotte Library does not own the book/article you are looking for, you can request it through ILL (Interlibrary Loan). If you are in the catalog record, use the Image of "Request Item Through Interlibrary Loan" button. button located on the right side of the page.

A book requested through ILL can take 1-2 weeks to arrive. Articles tend to be  faster. Additionally, ILL is not always able to get the item you want so starting early will give you time to find additional resources.
