Finding an article that is not in the library databases

"Dehumanized" by Mark Slouka is not available through the library databases. 
So what is a reputable way to find the full-text of an article that is not in the library databases?

1. Search the journal title on the Internet. Many magazines and journals will give you access to articles in past issues or from past years. For example, Harper's Magazine gives you access to their back issues on the Internet for free. Remember to put the journal title in quotes.

2. Search the title and/or author in GOOGLE SCHOLAR. Google Scholar contains magazine and journal articles when the copyright holder(publisher) permits it. Not all the citations returned with your search will contain the full text. Some make contain only a preview, excerpt, or an abstract.

How may I help you?
