How do I get the full text of an article from a database?

 Full-text articles are available online and in print.  Here are the various ways to get to full text articles available from the Furman Libraries.

  • If you are looking at the article citation in a database, look for a PDF or HTML icon.  Clicking on the PDF or HTML icon will give you the full text of the article.


  • If you don't see a PDF or HTML icon, then clicking on the FULLText icon will automatically start the search process.


  • If the full text is available online, you will be provided with a link to the correct database.  Often this will take you directly to the article.

  • If there is no online option, You will have the option to request a copy - from another library via interlibrary loan, or from our own collections via Scan & Deliver if available .  Clicking the "Request a copy" link will populate a request form with the citation information for this article once you login to your account.


  • You can also check the library catalog to see if the article is available in one of the library's print collections, and then go scan or photocopy the article yourself.
