If you wish to view the full text of an article, eBook or other electronic item, look for the View Online section of the record. Click on the name of the publisher/supplier to see the full text for that item.
If we have access to the journal through a number of suppliers, you may see several options for viewing that journal. Check the information listed with the journal holdings to make sure it contains the article you are looking for (we may have one year range with one publisher and the most recent articles with another publisher).
If you wish to find a physcial item we have in our collection, go to the Get it section of the record. If the item is available for loan, you see that it is available, and the call number and collection where the item can be found.
If the item is not available (because it has been checked out or is on hold), you will see that it is Out of the library, and you will need to be signed in to see the options to place a hold on the item.
A Note About Loan Periods and Hold Requests:
JCU Library has autorenewals, and the standard loan period is 3 Weeks. This means if an item is checked out, it may remain checked out to that patron until either they chose to return it, or it is requested by another patron. When a request is placed, the person who currently has the book checked out has until the end of that 3 Week period to return it. If you see that an item you want is checked out, submit a request for it (see below).
You need to keep an eye on your messages from the Library, as you will be notified by email if an item you currently have out has been requested by another patron. If it is recalled, you must return it by the due date or incur a fine.
If there are several requests for the same item, it will be moved to a "high use" status, with a loan period of 3 days. This is to allow several people to access that item in a shorter period of time. Please keep note of your due dates, and be prepared to the return the item on or before the due date to avoid a fine.
