Getting to the full text of journal articles and books
The University of Minnesota Libraries has access to millions of resources. You can find many of these resources available in full-text online.
This guide gives some tips and tricks to using different resources to get to full-text.
If the Libraries do not own the article or item, you can request it and we will try to get it from another library and deliver it to you online.
