Science Direct Searching Instructions

TEXT 334-781-5463 for help
Please note:

Science Direct cannot limit its search to only the content to which the Library subscribes.

When you search Science Direct, you will see results with a “Download PDF” link—those are articles from journals to which we subscribe or from open access journals, and can be accessed immediately, online.

You will also see articles with a link labeled “Get Access”—never use that fee-based service to access an article—use the Library’s Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service, linked from the Library home page, to request that we get a copy of the article for you (at no charge).
