Special usage notes:

Some of your search results will provide direct links to the full-text of the article cited; you may also see a full-text designation below the citation. For other electronic access options, use the Get Text @ UK link or the Other UK means of access (more information). To see if we own a paper copy of the journal, search the journal title via our online catalog, InfoKat; use the InfoKat link on the Get Text @ UK menu to have the item searched automatically by its ISSN. If we do not own the item in any format, and you are a UK-affiliate, you may request the item through ILLiad; use the Get Text @ UK menu and have the requested item's bibliographic information automatically entered into the ILLiad form.

Please Note: To see and use the Get Text @ UK link in Google Scholar, you must either use a campus machine or be logged into the proxy server (if you are off-campus). You can get the Get Text @ UK links to appear in Google Scholar if you go to Scholar Preferences and search and select University of Kentucky in the Library Links section. However, to actually link to any available full-text, you will still need to log in to EZProxy (using your linkblue account).
