Q. How do I find the full-text of an article?


Once you have found an article that you want to read in a database, you will have one of three options to access the full text of that article.

Full text link
Within a database you may see a full-text link.  By clicking on a full text link in either HTML or PDF format, you should immediately access the full text of the article.
Sample Full Text Logos

PDF 1    PDF 2    HTML 1

Article linker
If there is no icon to click for PDF or HTML full text, select the article linker that says "Get Full text" to see if full text is available in another database or in print format. Follow the links on the Full Text Search results page to see if the article is available in full text.

Interlibrary loan
If the full text is still not available, you can request the journal through Interlibrary Loan. Journal articles ordinarily are delivered to you electronically. You can request an article through interlibrary loan directly from the Results pages by clicking on the "Request this Article through Interlibrary Loan" link. Doing this will automatically fill in the author, title, date, ISBN and other fields on the interlibrary loan form, saving you time.
