ALICE is Ohio University's Library Catalog, useful for finding the books, magazines, journals, newspapers, videos and other materials in our collections.
Careful! ALICE does NOT search individual articles in magazines, journals or newspapers -- only publication titles. If you have a citation and wish to find the article itself, C&P the article title into Articles Plus -- or let us help you find it!
If we don't have the item you need (or if it's not available for some reason), be sure to see if OhioLINK can provide it for you.
OhioLINK is a statewide network of more than 100 library systems. In most cases, you can quickly and easily borrow books from OhioLINK for free, just click the REQUEST button and fill in your OU ID.
If you're using ALICE, you can always click on the button to go there.
Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery services borrow items from other libraries for you to use.
Here's a step-by-step breakdown:
1. Paste the article title into Articles Plus to see if we own the article. Click Get full text in HTML or Get full text in PDF to see the whole article.
Here's an example: Ekphrasis and the writing process. Krauth, Nigel, Bowman, Christopher. New Writing: The International Journal for the Practice & Theory of Creative Writing, Feb2018, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p11-30, 20p.

2. Get full Text by itself usually means the article is available, but you have to click to another database to see it. In 2 or 3 more clicks, you should have the whole article. Ask for help if you can't find it!
3. If we don't own the journal or article at all, login to Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery system (ILLiad) and request the article there.
