There are several ways to locate the full text of articles:
1. The full text may be readily available, in PDF or HTML format, in the database (or in Google Scholar)
2. If there is no full text available or the article is not in our library, you can request an article or book on Interlibrary Loan. This is a free service for Montevallo students!
