Finding articles

While Google Scholar is good for many searches, a specialized database can uncover materials not covered in GS.  In addition, individual databases allow for more targeted searching than Google Scholar.

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 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.
