The library now provides access to the majority of journals published by Wiley Blackwell through a new model called Article Select.  Instead of paying prohibitive journal subscription fees up front, we now pay per article used. 

Because we are now paying per use of the article, if you would like to include a Wiley Blackwell journal article on Blackboard, you must first download and save the PDF of the article to your desktop. Then you must upload the article to Blackboard.  Do not link to it!

How do I know if it's a Wiley Blackwell Journal?
You will know that the article is from a WB journal because you will see this screen when you try to access it:
