Why is there a message saying I have to pay for a journal article?

These are the reasons why you may have a message saying you need to pay for a journal article:

  • You need to login on My Account so the Library Catalogue identifies you as a Roehampton student/staff and gives you access to online resources.
  • The Library does not have full-text access to that journal article, only the article abstract. Please check the E-Journals Finder to see if we subscribe to this title and over what date range.  Please note that some journals might have more than one link for different date ranges. If we don’t have the item you are looking for you might want to visit other Libraries and/or request an Inter Library Loan through the link at the bottom of the Library Catalogue search result page
