What is Get It!?
Get It! is a convenient tool that connects you to content from the hundreds of databases that the Libraries provides access to. Get It! also connects to library catalog records for books and other materials. To access Get It!, click the button or "Get
It!" link that sometimes appears in library search results.
Why don't I see the Get It! button or link?
There are three possible reasons:
You may need to click on the article title to view the full record, since the full
text is already available in the database you are using.
You are using a database that doesn't use Get It! Consult Finding Articles to learn how to determine if the journal article is available online or in paper

What do the different options listed under "Links to Content" mean?
"Article" links will take you directly to the article. "Journal" links will take you
to the landing page for the entire journal where you will be able to search within
the journal for the article.
Sometimes there are multiple rows of "Article" and "Journal" links. This just means
that there is overlap between different databases. You can select any of the links
to access the content.
