If the URL for your reading has ezproxy.umw.edu in it somewhere, then it is restricted to the UMW community. In cases like that, take the full title of the reading and google it. It might help to put the title in quote marks. You may find the full text online, or a Google Books link, or a journal page with the abstract. Those URLs are more useful than the ezproxy ones, which only bring up a login page, like below.
By googling the title, you might find a link to the journal. Below is an example. Access to the article is still restricted, but someone from outside UMW could at least see what the article is about and where it comes from. It’s a little thing, but it makes what we put together in this class all the more useful.
