There are several ways to find the full text of an article if you have the full citation.

* Go to the Library homepage and select FIND JOURNALS under the Research Column. Type the title of the Journal (not the title of the article and click on search. If the Journal is accessible through AU, you will see results and can access the journal through the identified database. Not that dates covered many vary by database, so select a database that includes the year of publication you need.

* From the library homepage select DATABASES and enter "Google Scholar" into the Database Name box.  Enter the title of the article into the search bar on Google Scholar. If you have access to the full text, this information will be provided in the right hand column with the results.

* Download the Libkey Nomad extension for your web browser.  This extension allows you to access full text articles subscribed to by AU Library on the open web, including many scholarly publishers' websites, PubMed, Google Scholar, and Wikipedia.
