Depending on the database you're using, you may have a couple of options. If you see a link that says, "Full text" or "PDF Full Text," you can click on that link to access the article. If you don't see one of those links, you should see a blue box that says, "Check other SMU options." Click on that box. It will bring up a menu that includes links to full text online, if it is available.
If the full text is not included in our subscriptions, you will see a link that will allow you to search the library catalog. You can also just go to the catalog, and search on the name of the journal the article appears in. The catalog will tell you if we own that issue of the journal, so you can consult it. If we don't own the journal in print, you can use Interlibrary Loan to request the article, if you can wait a few days.
