All University of Waterloo faculty, staff and students may access Get it! @ Waterloo. Get it! @ Waterloo is available on and off campus.
Most, but not all, of the library subscription databases use this feature.
The most likely reasons are:
there is no full-text version available
the library does not subscribe to that journal online
Click on the catalogue link in Get it! @ Waterloo to see if the library has a print subscription.
Get it! @ Waterloo opens 3 new windows or tabs for each article:
clicking on the button opens a menu screen
selecting a "service" associated with that article opens a second window
and the third window appears for the resource that you choose
Remember to close the windows once your search is completed.
Generally, the library has one subscription to a journal, resulting in only one link. However, some packages result in duplication. Also, sometimes multiple full-text providers offer different coverage.
This means there is an error in a field, such as title or article year. Unfortunately, if there's an error in the citation Get it! @ Waterloo will be unable to retrieve the article. Try searching just the author or title. If it still doesn't work it's possible that the source has changed, so try another link or request an interlibrary loan (ILL).
Unfortunately, it's not always possible to configure a link to go directly to the full-text article or abstract. Some publishers only allow linking to the journal's main site or table of contents, from there you'll have to navigate to the full-text article.
Pop-ups must be enabled on your browser for Get it! @ Waterloo to function properly.
This message indicates one of two things:
the article is recent and has yet to be loaded on the site, or
the Get it! @ Waterloo links are incorrect and need to be updated.
