Well, it depends on where you find the citation. Here are two examples:

  1. Library search

  2. In a database (like EBSCO, JSTOR, CINAHL, Google Scholar, etc.)

1. From the library searchbox on EKU Libraries' website

Browsing through the search result list, you can read an article immediately by clicking on the grey "Access online" button:


If you've clicked on the hyperlinked article title, you can click on either the "Access online" button or the "View full text" link. Don't click on the "Request Item" button unless there are no links to access the article online (it will take a lot longer for you to get the article if you choose that option):

2. If you're searching directly in a database, such as EBSCO, JSTOR, CINAHL, or Google Scholar, you will see either a Get More button or text that says "GET MORE at EKU" to link you out to the full text of articles.


After you click the GET MORE, choose View Full Text to view or download the article

If there are no Access Online, GET MORE, or View Full Text options for an article, then you may "Request item through Library Express" and the library will see if we can get the article for you from another source.
