Online Journal Access to Staff?

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Hello, I'm a staff member within External Relations. I understand that as a staff member I can also get access to the library. I'm trying to access an online journal from Sage Publications but it appears that in Canada it is only available through Cybera (which I'm not familiar with). Here is the link:

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: I'm trying to get articles though SFU Library's online services. Most of them I am accessing just fine, but for two I get as far as the following pages, and then they say I don't have access to the PDFs :-(
http://jcc.sagepub.com/content/45/4/534.full.pdf+html or http://jcc.sagepub.com/content/45/4/534

I tried Ask a Librarian, and they said that they had no problems, so to contact you. Please help!
