Interlibrary Loan

How will I know if OU Libraries does not own the article?

Articles that are not available in the database you are searching or in another OU Libraries' database will be indicated with a Check for Full Text Link. After you open the Check for Full Text Link, look to see if OU Libraries has a physical copy of the article in a journal that you will be able to check out at the Circulation Desk. If there are no physical copies of the article, then you'll be able to request a copy from interlibrary loan
