Criss Library subscribes to a number of journals published by Springer, but we do not subscribe to the International Journal of Sexuality and Gender Studies, the journal which published this article.  Unfortunately, Springer's web portal does not have a facility to specify "only content available to my particular library," so it proves confusing. 

You may obtain a copy of the article by submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.  If you have not used Interlibrary Loan before, you will be prompted to create an Interlibrary Loan account.  Once logged in, here is the information you will need to request the article:

Author:  Larysa Mykyta

Article Title:  Sexuality and Female Friendship in Maryse Conde's I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem

Journal Title: International Journal of Sexuality and Gender Studies

Volume 5, Issue 2 (April 2000): Pages 195-204

Interlibrary Loan can usually obtain a PDF copy of an article in 2-4 days.  They will send an e-mail telling you to login to your Interlibrary Loan account to retrieve the file.

We recommend that researchers search journal titles (not article titles) in the All eJournals A-Z  directory linked under the Research Tools column on the library homepage:

Some journals have their articles licensed to more than one database, so if an article is unavailable from one source it may be available in another.  The All eJournals A-Z directory contains records linking to journals as they appear in all the library's databases.  This did not help with this particular article, but in many cases one can find another route to an article.  In any event, Interlibrary Loan remains an option whenever an article is just not available through Criss Library's resources.
