BIOLOGY 271: Cell Biology

What if the full-text isn't available?

If you've tried using the library's link resolver, Full Text Finder, and no links to the full text appear, then you have two options: 1) try Google Scholar, in hopes the author has self-archived the full-text, and 2) request the article through interlibrary loan.

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service provided by academic libraries, through which students can request articles that the library doesn't have. At BU, students are not charged for ILL. Every student has an ILL account -- to access it, use the link below. More info here...

Using Google Wisely

In addition to searching Google Scholar, you can also search Google, limiting to specific domains. Some governmental agencies may have relevant information as well as some educational or research institutions. By limiting to either .gov or .edu, you can limit your results to those types of websites. For example:

glut4 "transcription factor" site:gov
