UMass Library Databases

For finding reliable information in journals and magazines.

Getting the article


You see an article you want in a research database, but it's just the citation and abstract. Where is the article?

The UMLinks button links to the full text if it's available through the libraries. If not available online, it will search the library catalog for you to see if we have your article in print--or help you request it from Interlibrary Loan.
