This button provides links from library databases to online full text articles, when available. It also helps you search for a print version of the article in the SLU Libraries Catalog. If an article isn't available online or in print, you may request it via ILLiad Interlibrary Loan.
SLUth Search Plus searches about 50 library databases, including several history databases (Historical Abstracts, JSTOR, and Project Muse.) and the SLU Libraries Catalog.
