Preuss School: Full Text

How can I get to the full text of an article when I search a database?

How to find the full-text of the article:

Some databases include the full text of the article in the database.  Look for icons or links that say:

  • HTML  (good version for reading on a computer screen)
  • PDF  (good version for printing or saving to a portable drive)
  • Full Text  (no specific format listed, but full text nonetheless)

If the article isn't available full-text within the database you found it, click on the orange UC-eLinks button  uc elinks 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. 

UC-eLinks makes it easy to:

  1. Check for online access
  2. Check the catalog (Roger) for the print version
  3. Use Request to have us get a copy from another library (known as interlibrary loan)
  4. Format the citation information in one of 5 sytles to easily paste into your bibliography - use Copy & Paste citation

 

 

What if the journal (or article) I need isn't here - can Interlibrary Loan help?

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the service libraries provide when they do not own the item you want.  We will work with our partner libraries and borrow a book, video, or get a scan of a journal article at your request.
