If we don't have an article or a book we will know a library that does! You can request an inter-library loan. The number of requests you can make depends on your level of study.
If you need more, please contact me. Access the Interlibrary loans form
If you have found the article on Google Scholar or Google try copying and pasting the title into the Articles tab on the library catalogue and following the instructions for off-campus access. This will normally work. If it doesn't work look for the journal title in the catalogue and search for the article that way. It is possible we have access to the journal, but your article may fall outside our subscription (too early or too late). If the article is old you may wish to consider if this useful for your research - is it older than you are or is it a classic piece of research that you would be expected to read?
Finding information isn't always easy and can be frustrating. Have a look in Finding Information tab for more advice on selecting keywords for your search. Use the specialist databases in the databases tab and search those - they will give better results than Google. If you are still struggling, come and see me.
