Searching For Information After Graduation: Finding Full Text

Full Text

Most of the databases listed on the Resources and Evidence Based Practice pages only have some full text.

What should you do if you need an article which is not full text? 

Some options to check include:

  • your institution's resource intranet, library, or librarian
  • databases through your state's virtual library
  • libraries at public colleges or universities (They usually offer walk in access to the public but note that you have to physically visit the library to access the resource, licensing agreements do not allow institutions to provide off campus electronic access or to email articles to persons who are not faculty, staff, or students of the institution)
  • public libraries (They will sometime order articles for you at low or no cost)
  • Lonesome Doc (This is a program through PubMed, you do not have to be a physician, more info here: There is a cost to order articles through this program but it is usually less than buying an article from the publisher.)
