Looking Up Full-Text of Article Citations
You may come across articles online that look great for your topic, but do not have full-text available. When this happens, use the article's citation to try to find it in one of the library's databases. You can search by author or by title, or use the box at the right to see if we have access by searching for the journal's title.
Please note: a correctly formatted APA citation will have a "hanging indent", meaning that the first line is normal length across the page, but all subsequent lines are tabbed in.
