Looking for a quick place to start? Here are our recommended subscription databases:
Follow the steps shown in these screenshots to locate or request the full text of an article from a database like Academic Search Premier (EBSCO).
You can use the limiter on the left sidebar to narrow to results that only include access to the full text, or just look for the results that include a PDF or HTML option.
This screen shot shows various options for getting the full text of this article through the UO Libraries' subscription to Academic Search Premier.
If your article doesn't have a PDF or HTML full text, click the FindText button to get to this screen:
When the full text is not available as a PDF (or HTML format) in a database, you still have options to get it at no cost to you (up to the limit of $30 for students/staff and $60 for faculty per document. See About Borrowing for more). Click the Find Text button below the search result you want, and then look for the Check availability link.
Choose Interlibrary Loan for physical items (books, DVDs) to get them in 1-3 weeks from another library outside of Summit or for electronic items (PDFs of journal or magazine articles) to get them in 24-48 hours at no cost to you. Document Delivery is for requesting an electronic copy of an article or book chapter that the University of Oregon Libraries has in physical format.
