PSY 467 & PSY 468: Find It @ WOU


You've found an article you want, but there's no link to read the full text. The Find it @ WOU button can help! It will look to see if the article is available in another database, in print on the shelf, available for purchase, or can be borrowed from another library. Below are what those four different scenarios look like.



Scenario 1: Link to article in another database



...lists any online subscriptions and databases that have the full-text article. Click on the journal or database name to go to the article.  The library has pre-paid for this access.

Scenario 2: Print

...directs you to a print journal in the library. Note the journal name, volume, and year needed and go to the print journal collection to retrieve your article.  Journals are shelved in alphabetical order by title.   The library has pre-paid for this access.

Scenario 3: Get it Now On Demand

Scenario 4: Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request

Note: As many of our lending library partners are closed and practicing social distancing measures many print based article resources may have limited availability through interlibrary loan. Requests can take longer than usual and may be denied. 



...notes that we don’t have any immediate access to the article but that you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. Articles typically take 2-3 days for delivery, and we send them to your WOU email account as a PDF document.  The library budgets for Interlibrary Loan use, and we encourage your active yet purposeful use of the service.  We ask you to

  1. Read the abstract of articles to determine if they suit your needs before requesting them.
  2. Be considerate of the research needs of fellow students, faculty, and staff in your use of the Interlibrary Loan service.
  3. Cancel the request if you decide you don’t need the article before it arrives.
