Can I Get Library Materials Electronically?
Maybe. It depends if we have subscription access to it, if someone is legally offering it for free, or if you are willing to pay.
Find e-Journals -- Search for the journal title, subject category or by an article citation. Remember to check coverage dates. Electronic access to journal articles is restricted to the Mines Computing Network/VPN only.

Google Scholar -- Set "Scholar Preferences" to show links to full text journals that the Library pays for; otherwise, the provider will most likely ask you to pay.
