Extension Educators and Agricultural Distance Researchers

Find Articles

Extension Educators and Distance Researchers can request photocopies from print journals owned by the Penn State Libraries, as well as articles from journals not owned by Penn State.

Articles found via database searching

For most databases subscribed to by the PSU Libraries you will see GetIt! Button in the results of your search. Click the button and often the full text of the article will display.

If the article is still not available, click the Request via Interlibrary Loan  option to request a copy of the article.


Specific articles found via other means

Do you have the title and author of an article and just need to get to find the full text of that article? Google might work, but often doesn't if you are off campus or the article is available via a site not indexed by Google.
