In a nutshell: once you have found a citation in a database, you will have 4 options to obtain the full-text of the article.

  • Option 1: the article is available full-text right from the database you are searching from. Just click on the Full-Text HTML or PDF and you are all set.

  • That was the very easy part What if the full-text is not available from the database you are searching?

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.

You will encounter different levels of difficulties and hurdles, depending on the depository database

  • ProQuest is usually the easiest. Ebsco will make you click a few times. Do not give up. Call us if you have a problem.

  • 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. The companies have different interfaces and terminologies, but they are usually intuitive enough for you to figure out. Any problems, contact me.

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
