You have a couple of options: 1. I often suggest people look for the article in Google Scholar. Sometimes, not always, you can find a link to a copy of the article 2. Find out if another library near you has the journal in print. You can use WorldCat to find out who else owns the journal. 3. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is your best bet. If you submit an ILL request, we'll get the article for you from another library. Articles usually take several days to a week (depending on the other library) and cost a flat fee of $3.00. You can access the ILL form through the Library's website. A note about the ILL form: fill it out as completely as possible. The red dots indicate information that must be filled in. If you don't know the answer, put in something (e.g. ?, NA, xx) or you will not be able to submit the form.
