When looking up articles in a database, clicking on the "Get Full Text" icon will take you to the full text of the article, help you find a print version of the article in the library catalog or give you the option to request the article from another library if Booth doesn't have access to the article (this request is also called InterLibrary Loan or ILL).
For more information, visit this page about "Get Full Text" and see examples of how it works.
To access these resources, select "Databases" or the "Reference" tab from the Booth Library homepage. You will then need to select "Health/Medicine" from the subject drop down menu.
