LIBRARY INFORMATION HOW TO ACCESS FULL-TEXT ARTICLES Professor Paul Tremblay, 718 246-6382 or [email protected] THIS PRESENTATION COVERS THE PROCEDURES INVOLVED INTO ACCESSING THE FULL ARTICLE OF CITATIONS RETRIEVED ON DATABASES SUCH AS PROQUEST, EBSCO, INFOTRAC, CSA, ERIC OR PSYCINFO.
Option 2: After you perform a search in most databases (including ProQuest, Ebsco, InfoTRAC, ERIC, CSA, etc) you will be provided with a list of citations (title of the article, all the way down to the page number); oftentimes you will have no direct access to the full-text. Indeed you have indirect access. Each citation is accompanied by this symbol
By clicking on “Article Linker”, you should access a software (Serials Solution) which will 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.
Option 3: There is a possibility that the article you wish to obtain is only available in print somewhere in a LIU campus; in which case, after you clicked on “Article Linker”, this window should open with this message
Here the catalog informs you that the journal is available in print at our Post campus. You may go to the campus or you may perform an ILL request (next section)
Option 4: You decided to ILL the document from Brooklyn or Post. Or… should all of the above fail… That is, we do NOT own the article online or in print. The message should read like this:
You will have to obtain the journal article from our Inter Library Loan Dept. Go to the Brooklyn Library homepage, click on “Westchester”, then click on “Journal Request”.
Do NOT click on the “Inter Library Loan” icon!!
On the “Journal Request” page for Westchester, do not forget to input your library barcode (located on the back of your LIU ID card); provide us with as much information as you possibly can.
