If you found an article somewhere, but it's asking for payment, or says it's available only to subscribers, there are different ways you might be able to get it.
- Search for the article's title in quotes on Search All (the default search library's homepage).
- Use our bookmarklet. The bookmarklet runs articles (and other web URLs) through EZproxy, and if we subscribe to it, it will make the article available.
- Use a browser extension for opening available articles:
- LibKey Nomad: Free downloadable browser extension to provide quicker, easier access to scholarly articles and to avoid paywalls. Currently available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, Brave, and Vivaldi browsers.
- Open Access Button: Search for open access articles by title, citation, URL, DOI, PMID, or PMC ID.
- Unpaywall: Identifies free (and legally obtained!) scholarly articles from thousands of sources.
- Use our open access search to see if a free copy is available. Sometimes authors make their articles available for free.
- If we don't have an article, interlibrary loan (ILL) can often get it for you at no cost to you.
Remember: Any time you have a question or need a little help, please ask a librarian!
