Finding Full-Text Articles

Use the Get it @ CMU links wherever you see them!

If you have citations for specific articles, check the Library Catalog to see if we subscribe to the journal that contains the article. The Catalog will show whether or not we have access to the electronic version and/or the print version. If the CMU library collection doesn't have what you're looking for, you can request an article scan via Interlibrary Loan.

Request materials through Interlibrary Loan by clicking the ILLiad button and filling out a request form.

Reference librarians are here to help you - so please contact us with any questions!

Off-Campus Access

To connect from off-campus, access our resources via the library homepage or via this guide. Alternatively, use the VPN client as described on this page.

Interlibrary Loan


You can borrow items from other libraries if CMU Libraries does not have what you're looking for. ILLiad is our Interlibrary Loan system.  Simply go to this link, fill out a registration form if its your first time using the system and then click on a New Request link in the left hand column.
