Due to publisher restrictions, not all of the articles in our library's databases are available as full text, although 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. Below are instructions for a few of our most popular ones:
- In Primo (the "Everything" search on the library's homepage), look for the Available online filter on the left side of your search results. To keep this filter in place for the duration of your session, see instructions here.
- In EBSCO databases, the default is set to full text. Look for the "Full text" check box under "Limit your results", and make certain that it is checked before you 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!

- In other databases, you will need to be sure that you are searching "subscribed journals" or "available journals" only. See instructions for:
