|2.||If you still can't find the article you are looking for, or if there are too many search results, try using the Advanced Search option (beside the search box on the Library Search page).|
If these options do not work then try selecting the ‘Tweak my results' / 'Expand My Results’ option (underneath the search box).
|This will expand the results to include those that may not be covered by the Knowledge Network subscription. (If the reference then appears, but with a link saying “No Full Text, Get It For Me”, see Point 5 below).|
|4.||If the reference still does not appear then you could try searching online to see whether the item is freely available.
If it is not available via Google or Google Scholar, then you can use the Citation Linker to make a request. See the guide, ‘Requesting an item using the Citation Linker'.

|7.||If there are no links to an Open Access version (or a print archive version) then click the link to 'Get It For Me' which will enable you to make a request for an online version of the article.|
