2c. Find Full Text Print Page

How do I find FULL Text Articles

 When you search for FULL TEXT databases make sure to check the box on the search screen that limits to "full text".










Example of FULL TEXT

These links should take you to the article itself or it will tell you that Drury doesn't have that in any other databases. A link is offered for every database the article is available in. Once you are in the database, if you are given the choice between HTML and PDF, choose the PDF version. The PDF version is similar to getting a photocopy of the article and easier to cite in your paper.


The search results page is returned; this example shows one match. If you click on the "Online" you will see the match.

If no results are returned you can click on "Other Libraries" to see if a different library has what you need. You can also click on"ILL" and request the article from the Interlibrary Loan department.

Library Catalogs

The "Print" icon appears if Drury Library owns the journal in print or if you are looking for a book. For a journal, the library may or may not have the article you are looking for. A book may or may not be available through Drury or Swan.

Interlibrary Loan

In the event that you can't locate a full text article in the databases or in print, try order the article from Interlibrary Loan. Keep in mind the turnaround time can be up to two weeks.
