The quickest way to see if the library has access to an article is to copy and paste the full title into Summon search.


1. Put the title in quotations marks so that it will be searched as a complete phrase, rather than all of the words separately. Run the search.

2. Next, select Scholarly and Peer-Review articles from the content filter on the left hand side of the results. This is to ensure you are just getting the article itself, and not something about the article. 

3. The article you are looking for should be at the top of the results list because Summon will put the most relevant articles at the top. The other 3 articles in the list reference the one you are looking for. 

4. Double check using the authors' names: are the authors of your article the same as the ones listed?

If the library does not have the full text of the article you need, you can request it through Interlibrary loan.
