Unformatted text preview: If the window states “See if UCLA owns this”, click on the link to see if the article is at the library. If so, you’ll have to go to the Biomed Library or another library on campus to find it (you can determine this by the location of the journal that the article is in. You can search for the location of journals using the UCLA Library Catalog). If UCLA does not own it, skip this article and pick the next interesting one. If you really want the article (or a book) and another UC campus has it, you can get an interlibrary loan. For this, go to the UCLA Library homepage, point the cursor at “Services”, then point it at “Request”, and click “Interlibrary loan” • Note: If you are trying to access the article databases from an off-campus computer, you have to set up a “proxy server” before you’re allowed access.
