I have received an article abstract and would like to read the complete article. What do I need to do to read the complete article?

The short answer is 'It depends'. 

If you got the abstract from one of our databases, it's likely that the database's contract with the publisher only allows them to show the abstract.  If you got the abstract from someplace else, there is a chance that you may be able to find the whole article in one of our databases. 

Other than that, we would have to track down a physical copy of the article you are looking for or contact the puiblisher via email or their website.  If it is a recent article, there is a possibility we subscribe to the periodical your article is in and have it on our shelves.  But this obviously depends on the title of the periodical and the date of the article.

If you have more questions, please let me know!
