To Find Full Text . . . .

If you find an article description but cannot find the full text, try one of these solutions:

  • Google the title of the article in quotation marks ("")
  • Search the name of the journal or magazine here to find out if you have full-text access through the library databases
  • Call the library reference desk (995-1540) and ask to have the article emailed to you

Google Scholar

Google Scholar contains books, articles and other academic documents. Use Google Scholar as a supplement to the resources available through Osterlin Library.  Many items are full-text in Google Scholar, but not all!  When you locate an item in Google Scholar not available in full-text, consult these sources to determine if it is available through Osterlin:

1-iLink (Library Catalog) for books and documents

2-Osterlin Library Journal List for journal and magazine articles

If the item you want is not available through Osterlin it can be obtained through Interlibrary Loan, a lending service among libraries.

Library Databases

An A-to-Z list of our databases is here.  Or search all of the databases at once from the search box on the library's home page.
