Q. I looked for a journal in the catalog and it says we have online access to it but I'm having trouble accessing the article I want.  What gives?

A. Chances are you're trying to access an article that falls outside of our subscription date range.  Not all journals come with full text access up to the current issue.  Some journals may have full text access for specific dates ranges only.  Whenever you search for a journal title, the catalog will tell you what the full text coverage is so always make sure to check that before thinking something is wrong!
