Because linking between databases relies on so many different factors -- the quality of linking data in the first database, the linking system itself, and the second database's successful resolution of the link -- there is a lot of opportunity for a Get It @ Fisher link to fail. Here are some tips to try if a full-text link doesn't work.
Try searching the specific database, as described in the previous Q&A, by article title. If there’s no search box, return to the Library’s homepage and access the database through the Databases A-Z list to find the database and begin searching. If title doesn't work, search for the author -- there may be misspellings in the first database you linked from.
Try searching in that database, as described above. If there's no search box, go to Lavery Library's Databases A-Z list, find the database, and search from there.
No full-text found? First, try the "Find Journals by Title" service on the library homepage. Because this journal lookup only checks journal information, there isn't the chance for errors with article-specific information that Get It @ Fisher has.

If Find Journals by Title doesn't work to get you full-text access, just submit an Interlibrary Loan request!
