Sometimes, when you are looking to access an article in OneSearch, you might encounter a page like the one seen to the left, which reads "Please sign in for more options."

If you see this, that means that while we don't have access to the resource through any of our databases, we can get this for you free of charge, usually within 2 business days!


In this case, there are also other potential ways to find the article. Before you submit a request, you might want to see if there is an open access version available by clicking on that link. If you see a "Get PDF" link, that can take you directly to the article in question.
