An index is a database containing citation and abstract information. It describes the article but does not contain the full text of articles. If you find an article in an index you will need to locate the full text through the OneSearch or interlibrary loan.
If you can't find the full text of an article you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. This service is free, quick and easy. We deliver an electronic copy of the article directly to your ILL account. Click here to sign in or create a new account: http://illiad.wartburg.edu/illiad/logon.html
