  • [PDF] - clicking this link will often take you to a free version of the article. It might also link to the
    publisher's website or a scholarly social network site, both of which might block you from getting a full text copy of the article. If this happens, copy and paste the title into the search box on the library's home page (https://library.wou.edu/). Or you can submit an interlibrary loan request, which will take 1-3 days to be delivered to your Inbox

Clicking on the title usually takes you to the publisher's website, where you'll be asked to pay $25-$50 for the article. Never pay for an article. The WOU library can almost always get you what you need:

  1. Use Interlibrary Loan services
  2. Ask a librarian for help.
