What does Article Locator@La Salle do?

Article Locator graphicArticle Locator is intended to help you locate whether La Salle University Library has a subscription to an article which you have found by using an index. If the article is available fulltext online, a link to either the article or the journal is provided. If not available online, you can click on a link to find out if La Salle University library has the article in print. If La Salle University Library does not have the article, you have the option to request an Interlibrary Loan.

Where can I find Article Locator?

When you get your results in a database search look for either the words “Article Locator@La Salle” OR the magnifying glass icon:

In some cases you will need to follow a link which says “Looking for an Article?” or “Find a Copy” Some database vendors allow us to change this wording and others do not.

What will happen when I open the Article Locator Link?

You will see one of two things:

1. If there is a direct link to an online version of the article available, Article Locator will take you right there. You will see the following in the window which opens:

2. If there is not a direct link to the online version of the article, you will see the Article Locator window open.

Below the image, you will see the full text online options for the article:
