GETTING THE ARTICLES IN LIBRARY DATABASES

  • If you are in a library database with Check for Full Text buttons, click on "Check for Full Text." This button will take you the full text of the article or tell you that the full text cannot be found. If the full text is not available from Trexler Library, request it via interlibrary loan.
  • If you have citation information for the article (i.e., journal title, article title, publication year, etc.), type the information about your article in the article finder on the library website. If the library subscribes to the full text, you will be directed to the article. If not, you can request a copy of the article via interlibrary loan.
  • If Trexler Library does not have access to the full text of the article, search Google Scholar by article title to see if the author has made a copy freely available online. Look to the far right of the article's title to see if there is a link to a freely available copy.
