On PILOT records for electronic resources, there will be a "Linked Resources" note a little more than half-way down on the full record after the title, publication information, etc. and before the location information. If you are looking at a title list display, click on the item's title to get the full record. The content of the "Linked Resources" note will list the database that has that information and the years covered. The note is also hotlinked (highlighted in blue and underlined), so you can just click on the note to go to that resource. For periodicals, you will then follow the menus you receive to select the year you need, the volume number, etc. Eventually the system will display all the articles in a specific issue. Scan for the specific article you need and you'll find a .pdf or .html icon. Click that icon to get the full text. If you are accessing the database from an off-campus computer, the system might display the "Keystone Library Network PASS" page. This is just a security feature so that the system can verify that you are actually an IUP user. On the PASS page, use the boxes on the left and enter your Library barcode (that's the 16-digit number on the bottom of your I-card. The one that starts 60083901...) and your last name.
