Are all articles full-text online?
Many journal articles to which UK Libraries has access are available to you full-text online in .PDF format.
However, sometimes you may encounter a bibliographic record for an article to which we do not have access. When this happens, you can request that we get the article from another library using Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
If you have questions about or need assistance with ILL, please contact them.
