Accessing Full-text Articles in Avery Index

To access the full-text of an article in Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, locate an article record in your search results and click on the record for it to access the Details page. Click on the "Check for full text" button in the top right corner. This will run a check for that article in the library's holdings and subscriptions. You may receive a Scholar OneSearch record with a View Online link to the article or a record that indicates the library has a print copy of the periodical in which this article was published (you will need to use the citation information, such as the year of publication, volume and issue number, and page number to find the article in this print periodical). In other cases, you may find that we do not have direct access to the article and will need to request it from another library via interlibrary loan.
