Start in the appropriate tab in the Compass search (check out this FAQ for tips on which to use) and run your search. In this case, we're going to look for "Harry Potter AND Activism" in Articles+:

Here's an example of an article I might want to open. There's a series of blue links along the bottom that will open a sub-window in the results list:

You might also see Get It or Virtual Browse. These indicate that we also have the item in a physical format.

Details will tell you a little about the resource:

To actually get to the resource online, you'll want the Access Online tab. Once you've opened it, you should see something like this (you may have more or fewer listed links, depending on your resource):

This article is available from three resources. The icons under the first two entries tell me that they can be accessed by Iliff users , by DU Main Campus users  , and by DU Law Users  . You want to make sure that you choose a link that lines up with your access privileges. To open the article from a given resource, click on the blue link to the right of "Full text available at:" (see image above).

If you are off-campus, you will be asked to log in. Use your 87# and password like you would for PioneerWeb. You should load to a page with the article or with access to the article. If you experience any difficulty, please contact us.
