  • If the journal is available electronically, one or more resources will be listed.

  • ALWAYS check date ranges and embargoes (if any) listed next to the resource.

Date Ranges:

Full-text availability dates will vary by resource.

If your date is not available in any of the resources, go to Step 2 (Davie students) or Step 3  (Distance students)



Full text articles are not available during the embargo or "full text delay" period. (blackout dates)

Example: an embargo (or "full text delay" of 7 months means no full text are available for the past 7 months.
