Getting the Full Text of Articles

If the full-text of an article is not available in the database you are searching, look for a "Locate it" button, which will link you to either the journal in which the article is published or to the article itself.

If there is no button, use the Journal Titles tab in the red search box at the top of the main library web page to search for the title of the journal, or use the link below.  If we have a subscription, you will learn what years are available and in what database.  Some or all years of a journal may be available only in physical form in the periodicals collection on B2.

For other journals we may have limited access, for example, not the most recent issues or not the earliest published issues. If we do not have access to the issue you need, use  ILLiad, our interlibrary loan system.

 

Basic Library Tools

Clicking on the title of a book from the list of results  displays the details about the title, it location, its availability, the subject headings assigned to it, and often its contents.

Depending on the type of material,  you may need to use the location and call number information to find the material on the shelf in the library, or, if it is an online resource, click on the link to the full text.

You also have options to email, save to a citation database format, or add to a list of saved titles in in your account (you'll have to sign in to do this). Simply click on the available links.

Finding Books and Videos in the Library Catalog

How do I use the library catalog?

There are several paths:

  1. Select the “Books and More” tab on the search box on the libraries main page.

         2. There is also a “Books and More” link under Quick Links.

         3. If you are already engaged in OneSearch, you can choose  Books, Audio, or Video from the Item Type dropdown  box beneath the search box.

How do I limit my search in OneSearch to a particular format like films or sound recordings?

Go to Advanced Search, and use the Material Type pull-down.

How do I refine my search in OneSearch?

After completing a search, use the options on the left-side. You can refine by a number of options, such as Full Text Online, Available in Library, Author/Creator, Subject/Topic, Resource Type, and more.
