When you have found a promising book or journal article in a print bibliography or footnotes, the foolproof method for getting access is to search for the BOOK TITLE in Blais and the JOURNAL TITLE in our Electronic Journals List (search boxes below).
DO NOT search for the ARTICLE or CHAPTER title in Blais or the Electronic Journals List, as they won't come up in a search. DO NOT waste your time searching individual databases such as JSTOR, we have over 300 databases and they all contain different journals.
Search for journal titles in the Electronic Journals List. Then drill down to the year of the article, etc... until you get to the full-text.
