The links are determined by the publishers. Most publishers permit a direct link, but some publishers will send users to another search screen.

If you need help locating an article, contact the Library Resources Information Desk at or 701.777.3993.

The library provides electronic access to journals whenever possible. Some reasons why a journal isn't available electronically are the following:

  • Cost - The library budget does not support subscribing to all titles electronically. Please contact the Collection Management Librarian with suggestions and comments as to which titles are needed the most.
  • Availability - Some titles are not yet available electronically.
  • Licensing - Publishers may have license restrictions on usage conditions that we cannot accept.
