If the article isn't available full-text within the database you found it, click on the orange UC-eLinks button to checkfor other full text as well as print options. UC-eLinks checks to see if the article is available through UC San Diego Library's subscriptions - whether it is online or in print.

Bibliographies are a great source of information for your own research. If you've found a book or an article that is especially useful, always take a look at the bibliography or works cited. You can use citations to find copies of the books and articles that are referenced.
A great way to do this is with UC-eLinks’ Citation Linker. If you have a citation and you want to find the article that it references, enter the citation information in the appropriate fields. The Citation Linker will retrieve a digital copy of the article if one is available.
If a digital copy is not available, you will be able to search the library catalog for the title of the journal in which the article was published. If the Library owns a print copy, you will then have to locate the print journal on the shelves or request a scanned copy using the Document Delivery Request Form. If the Library does not have access, you may use Interlibrary Loan to request it.
