Getting Full Text Articles Off-campus

Plan A:

Use the Find It @ WVU Libraries! link. This let's you get it for FREE for being with WVU. 

Use this  blue box with the Flying WV and the text Find It @ WVU Libraries

Plan B:

You can always order the article via InterLibrary Loan (ILLiad). This is free for you. If you need help with this, check with your librarian!

Um... I got a login prompt?

From off-campus locations, you will be prompted to enter a username and password when you select a resource. 

  • Username: WVUID username (usually the same as the MIX username).
  • Password: WVUID password
