Due to publisher restrictions, not all of the articles in our library's databases are available as full text, but many are.

To ensure that your search results contain only full-text articles, use the database's limiting options Each database will look a bit different...here are instructions for a few of our most popular ones:
 

  • In EBSCO databases, look for the "Full text" check box under "Limit your results".   Click the box to check it, then start your search.  All articles or books in your results should have a "full text" link below their citations.  Click the full text link to start reading!

  • ProQuest databases work the same way.  Check the "Full text" box before you start your search.  All of your search results should then have a "full text" link beneath their citations. Click a full text link to start reading!

If you have found an article that doesn't have a full text link (whether you found in the library's databases or elsewhere),  click here to find out how to track it down.
