Not all content providers support direct linking to individual articles, book chapters, etc. on their system. In those cases you may land on the journal's home page where you can search for your article title, or browse to the year/volume/issue/page number of your article.
If we only own the source of the content in print, you'll see a link to the catalog record for that item. We can scan individual articles or chapters; start that process by logging into ILLiad, the interlibrary loan service, and filling out a request for an article/book chapter.
If we don't have access to the source of the content at all, the Get VText system will present a link to ILLiad so you can request a copy via interlibrary loan. That link will fill out the request form for you once you've logged in to ILLiad, savibg time and ensuring accuracy. Most ILLiad requests for articles and book chapters come as PDFs you can download.
It's important to note that the presence of a Get VText button or link does not guarantee access; the lookup for that does not occur until you click the button or link.
