Step One: Start at the EKU Libraries homepage. Enter as much of the title and author information that you know into the library search box.

Here we are using the article "Using the instructional design process in tutorial development" by Terri Artemchik as an example.

Step Two: Review search results to determine if the library search found a record for your specific article. In our example, it found two different records for our needed article.

Step Three: Just click on the ACCESS ONLINE blue button to get the article in full text.

Tip! Sometimes article will not have full text and you will ned to request the article.  Look for what's missing to quickly identify these articles. There will be no access online button nor will the information indicate it is held by EKU Libraries.  The below is an example of an article that you would need to request.

Click on the article title then click on the blue request item through Library Express button to request an article without full text in the library search.
