If you find an article on a publisher's website, look for a box in the lower left of the page. There are four possible options which LibKey might display:
- "Download PDF" and "Article Link" - the library provides access to this article and you can either download the pdf of the article or click on the article link to get to a page with information about the article;
- "Article Link" only - the library provides access, the link will take you to the article but not permit directly downloading a pdf;
- "Manuscript PDF" and/or "Manuscript Link" - LibKey provides an Open Access version of the article (which is a freely available version of an article, for more information see the library's guide to Open Educational Resources);
- "Library Access Options" - no library access, but the link will take you to a page where you can ask the library to try to get you a copy.
Click on the LibKey link to access or request the article. If the library provides access, you may be prompted to login with your Franklin University account information. Here's a sample of what the box looks like:
