Key Databases for Finding Journal Articles in Psychology

To get all the full-text resources, make sure you are logged into the Library your Duck ID or are signed into the campus network VPN (Cisco).  If the UO Libraries doesn't have the journal article or book chapter you need, use our interlibrary loan service (see video below).  Articles and chapters usually come in 3 - 4 working days.  Books may take about two weeks.

Step 1: Configure Google Scholar

Google Scholar allows users to affiliate with a university.   Creating this affiliation allows people searching in Google Scholar to easily obtain the full text of articles and other electronic materials licensed by the university, generally by the university library.   Once you have configured Google Scholar for affiliation with the University of Oregon, Google Scholar offers a link in the results list to UO FindText for items that can be accessed via the UO Libraries. Off-campus access to these items is limited to current UO students, faculty, and staff.   You will only need to select the UO library link in the Google Scholar settings once for each computer that you use. 

1.  Start at the Google Scholar homepage, click on the menu icon in the upper left and select "Settings"


2.  When you are on the Scholar Settings page, click on the "Library links" in the left menu.
