An article has a link for Full Text but when i click the link it takes me to a page where i either have to pay for the article or sign in on Taylor & Francis. The article is "The relationship between time spent by older adults in leisure activities and life satisfaction".

Answer

Hi Melissa,

Based on what you're describing it seems like you located this article in CINAHL, is that right?  When I searched for this article in CINAHL I saw an icon for "Linked Full Text" below the search result, which as you point out, is meant to take you directly to the article.

However, in this case we actually do not have full text access to this article.  The icon for "Linked Full Text" is showing up erroneously, possibly due to faulty metadata in either CINAHL or Taylor & Francis.  The library does have a subscription to Physical & Occupational Therapy In Geriatrics, but our holdings begin with 1997, and the article you want is from 1996.

So, you will have to place an interlibrary loan request in ILLiad in order to obtain a copy of this article.  You can either login to ILLiad from the library homepage and fill out an article request manually, or you can search for the article in Primo.  If you go the Primo route, paste the article title into the Primo search bar and run a search.  Once you are on the main Primo search screen, sign into Primo using your regular university credentials by clicking on "Sign in" in the upper right-hand corner. Then, select "Expand my results" from the menu on the right-hand side.  The article should then appear as the first result:

Click on the article title to access the full record, where you should then see a link for "Interlibrary Loan Request (ILLiad)".  When you click this link you'll be able to login to ILLiad, and the request form will be prepopulated for you.  Then just submit the request using the link at the bottom of the screen.

Thank you for your question, and if you should have any trouble submitting the ILLiad request, please let me know.
