Finding articles

These databases are a good place to find peer-reviewed journal articles in the discipline of Family and Human Services. While Google Scholar can be useful, subject-specific databases allow for more targeted searching.

Accessing the full text of articles

When you're looking at an article in a database, look for a link to access the full text of the article as a PDF or HTML full text. If you are off-campus, you may want to download and install the campus VPN software to ensure reliable access to the UO Libraries electronic resources. 

If there's no full text link available, click on the FindText button  to see what your other options for access are. This will take you to the library catalog, where it will show you whether the article is available from a different source through the library's subscriptions. 

If you still can't find the full text of the article, you can request a copy using Interlibrary Loan. You should receive the article electronically within 1-2 days. 

Note: As of December 28, 2022, library users will no longer place interlibrary loan requests through their ILLiad account. All requests can now be placed directly through LibrarySearch. Learn more at the Interlibrary Loan link above.
