Get Articles Off Campus

Logging in to library resources off campus
When accessing some things from the library page, you will be asked to log in to identify yourself as a UW Oshkosh student/instructor. Click the above link for instructions.

 

Search for journal and newspaper articles online
Search in these to find full articles online ("full text") that you can read or print from any computer, even off-campus. Click the above link, choose a subject area, and look for the databases with a full text icon Full Text

 

How do I use "Get Full Text"? Get Full Text
If the article is *not* full text in the database you're searching, click the "Get Full Text " button to find the article. You will be taken to a window where you can click 'article' to get it, or place an InterLibrary Loan Request.

 

E-Reserves
Check e-reserves for online articles placed on reserve for your class.

 

Is this journal or newspaper online?
If you have a citation and want to see if the article is online, search for the journal or newspaper title to see if it's online and where to find it.

 

Delivery of articles to off-campus students
Can't find it online? Polk Library will email, fax, or mail articles to students, faculty, and staff who do not regularly commute to campus. See the Delivery of Articles and Books page for details.

 

Does my local library have this?
If you need a journal right away, check WorldCat to see if a library in your area has the journal you are looking for (this searches college and public libraries across WI and the US). Click on the title in your results for a list of libraries near you that have a copy.

 

Request articles from other libraries
If the article you need is not online or at Polk Library (check the catalog), you can request it through interlibrary loan (ILLiad). Items generally take 3-5 days to arrive at Polk. **Note: you must have a 16-digit TitanCard numberto log into ILLiad. Here is a link to a short video showing you how to get this number online: http://screencast.com/t/MmFjNGI1N
