Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a common service between libraries. When the UC library doesn't own or have access to an item, we can often borrow it from another source. A few limitations exist, so please review the following links:
Additional questions? Item unavailable via ILL? Don't hesitate to contact us about alternate options.
Take 10 minutes to so some brainstorming and start a searching journal. Ask yourself the following questions or similar ones.
Keep a record of the answers and additional questions that come up as a result of this process. As you progress, you will begin to develop a 360 view of your topic.
Is it scholarly and how do I limit my search?
As much as we want it to be otherwise, no one database or website provides everything fulltext or free. Don't give up yet! There are ways to acquire materials, so be persistent. Maybe the item you need is available via another database or another library.
A DOI (digital object identifier) is a numeric name given to a journal article or any other type of content found on the Internet. DOI names are used to provide current information about articles, including where they (or information about them) can be found on the Internet.
If you can't locate a DOI in the database where you found the article, or on a page of the article itself, here's something else to try:
The website https://www.crossref.org/guestquery/ has a form that allows researchers to enter an article author and title, and search for the DOI if one exists. Skip the first "Bibliographic Metadata search" and scroll down to the "Search on article title" area. Enter the information and click search. If no results appear, try the top search, entering more information about the article.
If you can't locate a DOI in this way, remember that including it in your citation is not an absolute requirement of APA 6 style -- you can still reference the journal publisher's website instead.
