For general tips on finding articles, please see How do I find journal, magazine, or newspaper articles?

You may be prompted for payment when attempting to access articles through an external site (a link you found via a Google search, for example). So you'll be recognized as someone affiliated with UA (student, faculty, or staff), be sure to connect to articles through the Libraries website.

If you're a Google Scholar user, you'll have better luck retrieving articles by accessing Scholar through the Libraries website or selecting The University of Alabama as your institution in Scholar Preferences.

Even if we don't subscribe to the publication in which the article appears, you don't need to pay for it. If we don't have the item you need, you can request it via Interlibrary Loan (How do I request an item via Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?).

Let us know if you're having trouble accessing an article, and we'll be happy to look into it for you.
