There may be times when you already know the article you need. You just need to find out if the library has full text access. Here's a quick way to check:
If we have access, it should be the first record in the results list. Click the Article icon to connect to the full text.
You may run into a situation where you are asked to pay for full text. Don't do it! The library can usually get the article for you for free. Please Ask a Librarian for help if you run into this problem.
Dana Medical Library has access to over 5,000 journals and more than 95% of them are available online. The videos in the box below will show you how to find full text article in 3 key resources: CINAHL, PubMed, and Google Scholar.

Just follow these steps:
Step 1. Go to the Dana Medical Library homepage
Step 2. Click on the green DD/ILL Request button
Step 3. Click on the link that matches your affiliation e.g. students would click the first one - UVM Health and Biomedical Sciences Student, or University of Vermont Medical Center Resident or Fellow
Step 4. Fill in the "Information About You" boxes with your name, department, and email address
Step 5. Be sure to select the Email it to me option under "Delivery Options"
Step 6. Enter information about the item you are requesting in the "Item Information" box. Please include as much information as you can.
Step 7. Select the I agree to abide by US Copyright Law option
Step 8. Click on the Submit button
