HOW TO ACCESS FULL-TEXT ARTICLES A Tutorial for Global College Faculty and Students Professor Paul Tremblay & Professor Ingrid Wang Brooklyn Campus Library Long Island University
This Tutorial Covers: The procedures involved for accessing the full-text journal articles of citations retrieved from databases such as ProQuest, EBSCO, InfoTrac, CSA, ERIC or PSYCINFO
From Citations to Full-Text Articles: Options So, you performed a search in one of the library databases, how do you obtain the full- text articles? There are several options depending on vendor platforms and full-text availability of these journals.
The article is available full-text right from the database you are searching from. Click on the Full-Text HTML” or “PDF” icons and you are all set What if the full-text is NOT available from the database you are searching from? Option 1: Direct Access and Availability
After a search is performed from databases such as ProQuest, EBSCO, InfoTrac, CSA, and ERIC, you will be provided with a list of citations. The citations include information such as article title, journal title, author, brief summary and page numbers. If no direct full- text access is provided, you may see the Article Linker Symbol: Option 2: Article Linker
By clicking on “Article Linker”, you are accessing the library’s Serials Solution service to determine which, if any, database(s) carry the article in question.
If found, Serials Solution opens a new window with either the article itself (in HTML or PDF) or a direct link to it.
You may encounter different interfaces and intermediate steps before you obtain the full- text articles, depending on the depository database. Most databases (CSA, ProQuest, Ebsco, InfoTrac…) provide you with the options to preserve, in one way or another, the citation and/or the full-text of the article. If you have any questions or encounter any problems, do not give up. Contact us. Print, Email or Save
Option 3: Print Version Available There is a possibility that the article you wish to obtain is only available in print somewhere in a LIU campus. After you clicked on “Article Linker”, this window should open with this message
Click on “Journal” to access the online Library Catalog (LIUCAT).
The catalog informs you that the journal is available in print at our Post campus. You may perform an InterLibrary Loan (ILL) request (next section)
Option 4: InterLibrary Loan If we DO NOT have a journal that contains the article you want electronically or in print, the message will appear:
