Question: How do I get the full text of an article?

Answer


It depends on the circumstances. Here are two different scenarios:

Option 1:  When you’re searching across a set of databases:

  • In the article record, click the “Check availability (GetIt)” link.

    • If full e-text is available:  Under the “Electronic Version via” heading, one or more links to the article will appear.

    • If no full e-text is available:  Under the “Copies in the Library” heading, click the “Search for this title in BobCat” link to see if the bound journal is available in the Bobst stacks.

    • If neither is e-text or print copy is available:  You can request the article via our Interlibrary Loan system.

Option 2:  When you’re searching an individual database:

  • In the article record, look for a full text icon/link and click it.

  • If there’s no full text icon/link, look for the gray NYU button and click it.

    • If full e-text is available:  Under the “Electronic Version via” heading, one or more links to the article will appear.

    • If no full e-text is available:  Under the “Copies in the Library” heading, click the “Search for this title in BobCat” link to see if the bound journal is available in the Bobst stacks.

If neither is e-text or print copy is available:  You can request the article via our Interlibrary Loan System.
