McMaster University Libraries was one of the first Ontario University libraries to launch GET IT! last fall.
This exciting new service works with the Library's e-Article Databases to provide a seamless link from a citation to the full-text of an article.
Using GET IT!
1. Search your topic in a database
2. Look for - then click on - the GET IT! button:
3. A menu will appear with your citation on the top and your GET IT! options beneath:
4.GET IT! (Find the Article)
full-text available..." click right through to the article
if no full-text link appears, click on MORRIS to:
- find a call number for a paper subscription
- or a link to the e-subscription if it's one not yet activated in GET IT!
if it's not available @ Mac, request an ILL via RACER
Over the fall library staff worked diligently towards activating our 12,500 e-journal & database subscriptions to make GET IT! fully functional. Currently, all of Health Science Library's e-journal subscriptions are activated, and approximately 75% of Mills, Innis & Thode's subscriptions are completed.
There will be some e-article databases for which it will not be possible to provide a GET IT! button. Check out our FAQ page - some of your questions may be answered there!

The ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research) web site and telephones will be unavailable on Dec. 27-28 as the voice and data lines that supply the Perry Building will be moved as part of the Perry Extension construction project.
Scholars Portal will be increasing storage capacity on the storage area network the OCUL servers use for data, but will need to schedule downtime to do this work. This process will start at 8:30am on December 26th and will last from 6 to 8 hours. During this time all journals accessed through ScholarsPortal, SFX (Get It!), Web of Knowledge, and the preview site for CSA Illumina will be unavailable.
