How can I get the full text of an article I want to read?
You can check for access to a complete article by searching in our library catalog, WorldCat Discovery, on the library homepage or most research guides. Enter the article's title and select the matching result.
If Shenandoah provides access to the article, you will see an option to "View Full Text" or "Access Online." When you click to access subscription resources from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in with your SU network account.
If our subscriptions don't include the article, you'll see an option to request the article through interlibrary loan.
If you experience problems with finding a full-text article, one of our librarians will be happy to help you.
For more seamless access to library resources, simply install the LibKey Nomad extension for Chrome, Firefox, or your preferred browser. Then choose Shenandoah University from the list of organizations.
Once the plugin is installed, look for this sign when you're searching publishers' websites, PubMed, Wikipedia, and more:
