The main purpose of a database such as Medline or CINAHL is to find references to good quality research evidence.

Sometimes you will be able to access the article straight away or you will able to find a paper copy of the journal in the library.

However sometimes you will need to order the article using the reference you found on the database.

You can order the article through the Inter Library Loans Service for a small charge (£3). Follow the link below for more details.
