What is it?

Our "Find Full Text" buttons and links launch a link resolver tool that enables you to:

  • Link to full text online, if it's available anywhere in our holdings.
  • Link to the library catalog records of titles we have in print, where you can check holdings, location, and status.
  • Request the item through interlibrary loan if we do not have it.
  • E-mail the citation, or export it to a reference management software.

What should I look for?

  • In many of our databases, you launch a search for the full text by clicking the green "UNTHSC Find Full Text" button.
  • In some databases, including Google Scholar, we are limited to text links.  Examples are "Search for Full Text" and "Full Text @UNTHSC."
  • Other databases cannot be enabled with these buttons or links. If you find an article you want in one of these resources, try searching Journal Finder for the title of the journal.  If we have access, you can link from there to the journal's website and locate the article.

Which link should I choose?

  • Whenever possible, choose an Article link, which should lead directly to the full text or the page where you can download it. 
  • Otherwise, choose a Journal link, which leads to the homepage of the journal. Once you're there, navigate to the article you've selected.  Many journals label the section of their site where previous issues are stored the "Archives." 
  • The Resource links on the results page lead to the homepage of the database or the library catalog, so they should be considered a last resort. 
  • If there are multiple resources listed, check the coverage date ranges to be sure that the one you select includes your article.
