Finding full-text articles in databases
Many of the databases contain articles in full-text; however, a full-text database does not mean that everything in the database is available in full-text. Some of the entries may only provide a citation or a citation and an abstract.
Look for links like:
- "Check for full-text"
- "See more details for locating this item"
- "Find full-text"
- "Link to article"
By selecting links like those listed above you are enabling our WebBridge link resolver to connect you from the article citation to the article in full-text in one of our other resources.
Here are a few screenshots, look to find the links that were described above and you will be able to begin to be able to quickly identify and use our "link to full-text" service. (For a PC use Control and the "+" sign to magnify, for a Mac use Command and the "+" sign to magnify.)
If the article is available in full-text you will see a screen showing you where it can be found, either in another database or in the library’s print holdings or both. Here is an example…
If the article is not available you will see a screen that gives you the option of ordering that article through Interlibrary Loan. Here is an example…
Whenever an article is not available in full-text you may request it through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services.
Our ILL services are easy to use and documents typically only take 24-48 business hours to arrive. We have a tutorial for using ILL services if you need more information.
