Hi Kaitlyn ~
I want to make sure you have located your article as you have stated you "don't know how to download an article". If you have found an article via one of our databases, you should see either a .pdf or .html logo indicating it is available for download. If you are searching a database in EBSCO, it is typically located on the left side of the screen within the record (or after you click on the hyperlinked title). In JSTOR, the hyperlink, download pdf, is located within your search results if it is available. Once you click on these links, the article should open in a .pdf or .html format in which you will have the option to print or email the article.
When searching our databases, it is possible that you have found an article citation in which we do not have full access. If this is the case, you would need to complete an ILL request and we can secure the article from another institution. Below are some links I think you may find helpful, but if you are having trouble locating pertinent information I encourage you to visit the Research Services Desk (first floor of Bailey Library) to meet with a librarian. You can also call the Research Services desk and speak to a librarian. He/She can walk you through the process and assist you in downloading or requesting articles you need. A librarian is available M - TR, 10 AM - 9 PM (except bi-weekly on Monday evenings), F 10 AM - 4 PM, and Sunday 1 - 9 PM. The phone number to call for assistance is 724.738.2641.
