Using GET IT @ OU Libraries to Find Full-text Articles

How do you find full-text articles?  Use GET IT!

What is GET IT?  GET IT links connect you to the library’s electronic journal collections.

Here's an example: This article is from the ERIC database. There’s no PDF or HTML full-text link, so the complete article is not available in this particular database.  Instead you can use the GET IT @ OU Libraries link in the upper right corner to check if the full-text is available from elsewhere in the library collection.

Once you click GET IT, you will be taken to the library record with a link to the full-text article if OU has access to it. Click on the link to view the location of the full-text.

Once you are there, locate the full-text link.  It will most likely be a PDF.

Not every article is available online, so when you click the GET IT button, you might see a screen like this with a link to Request via Interlibrary Loan:

This link will take you to the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan service where you can request your item from another library.

Alternatively, you may see a screen like this:

This shows that the library has the article in print. Print Journals can be located on the 4th floor of the library.


If you have any questions, please ask a librarian for assistance.
