To answer this question, we'll use the example above to identify the elements needed to locate full text.

Article title:     Deaf White Cats

Author(s):         Kral, Andrej ; Lomber, Stephen G.

Journal Title:     Current Biology

Volume:            25

Issue (if available):  9

Pages:             351-353

Publication Date:  May 4, 2015

DOI or PMID (if available):  10.1016/j.cub.2015.02.040


You can often (but not always) locate full text for a specific item by searching Primo.

If this search is unsuccessful, find the Look up an Item link to access the search form.

If you have a DOI or PMID, you can search by this ID alone. If you don't, you'll need to enter much more citation information.

Once you submit the completed form, you will either be taken to online full text or be prompted to sign in to view request options. If you are prompted to sign in to view request options, sign in and you'll see an option to request full text using interlibrary loan (ILL).
