When a resource is available online through Search It, below the title of the resource there will be a green dot and the words "Available Online." To access the resource, click the "View It" tab.
When you click the View It Tab, one of the following will happen:
When a physical resource is owned by K-State Libraries and is not currently checked out, below the title of the resource there will be a green dot and the words "Located at" followed by the location and call number. Click the "Find it at the Library" tab to see more information, e.g., information about multiple copies of a book.
When a physical resource is owned by K-State Libraries but is currently checked out, below the title of the the resource there will be a yellow or gray dot and explanatory text. Click the "Find it at the Library" tab to see options, such as placing a hold or requesting through Interlibrary Loan.
The "Find it at the Library" tab will provide access to K-State Libraries' Interlibrary Loan Service. If you are a current K-State student or employee, you can use that service to request the article or book chapter.
If Search It does not show online full text for an article or for a book chapter, below the title there will be a yellow or gray dot with the words "Not available online." To discover if K-State Libraries has a physical version of the article or book chapter, click the "Check for Physical Copy".
