You've probably seen the Findit@WWU button in some article databases that allows you to locate the full text of an article online. Zotero allows you to use the same feature when you only have a citation, rather than the full text of an article.

To set up Zotero to access Findit@WWU:

Step 1

Go to the Zotero preferences

Shows clicking Edit menu then slecting Preferences in the Zotero app

Step 2

Choose the Advanced tab, copy and paste the WWU link resolver URL ( http://na01.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/view/uresolver/01ALLIANCE_WWU/openurl? ), and click OK

Step 3

Select the article citation in Zotero you want to look up through the Libraries, then click the green arrow drop down menu and choose Library Lookup

Step 4

If we have access, it will open your preferred browser and give you an access link. If not, a link to place an inter-library loan request will be provided.
