The search engine might point to the article instead of attaching the pdf.
Look for this button:
FindIt analyzes the article citation. FindIt will point to the WSU electronic copy of the article if one is available. If FindIt can't find the article easily, FindIt will offer other options. Sometimes FindIt can't negotiate all of the article options and you may need help to find the article manually.
I found an article but ...
Can't find the full-text? That's normal. Contact the Engineering Librarian. He will help you to find a copy. You may have to place an ILL order for material WSU does not already own.
Tip: Use the ACM DL to discover full-text articles from all of the Association of Computing Machinery journals and selected conference proceedings. Some ACM affiliated organizations contribute content also. Abstracts are included for relevant non-ACM references.

Tip: Use IEEE Xplore digital library (or IEL) to get full-text access to world wide technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science, electronics, and other related disciplines. IEEE Xplore includes IEEE journals, magazines, transactions, conference proceedings, and standards. IEEE Xplore also points to content from select other publishers including the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), MIT Press, IBM, Alcatel-Lucent, VDE Verlag, Morgan & Claypool, Tsinghua University Press, and Beijing Institute of Aerospace Information (BIAI).
Use Computer and Applied Sciences Complete to find articles on computer theory and systems and the social implications of new technologies. Some full-text is available but you will need to use the Find-It button to determine WSU access options to some of the literature.

Tip: The Web of Science Citation Index searches the literature that made the biggest research impact. Search SCI when you want to find quality over completeness. Use the Find-It button to determine WSU access options to the literature.

Search these publisher-based collections to find high quality journal articles and book chapters. You will miss relevant conference papers and research reports if you limit your strategy to these search engines.
Tip: The EJC includes full-text articles from select STEM publishers (e.g.: Elsevier and Springer) and some professional associations. Use this search engine to discover journal articles from more than one publisher. Much of Science Direct and SpringLinK can be found in the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center and Electronic Book Center.

Ratchet-up the quality of your Google search. Search Google Scholar to find journal articles, conferences papers, and patents. Google Scholar may offer you a link to the paper -- but it is more likely to point to a publisher - who will ask you to pay. The WSU libraries may be able to get you the paper you need.
Use the Settings option:
Tip #1: Add the OhioLINK "library link" to integrate WSU access options into your results.
Tip#2: If you are off-campus and see a reCAPTCHA error message "invalid domain for site key," go directly to google scholar; open the menu; choose Settings; Library Links; find and select "Wright State University - Full Text - Wright State."
