When you find a citation in a database without the complete article, the Full Text Finder link should direct you to another database which has the complete article. Look for this symbol EBSCO Full Text Finder logo

If there is no link available or the link does not work, check Google Scholar and UMBrella.

For database specific instructions, scroll down towards the bottom of this page to Links & Files.

If none of these options work, use the citation information to find the article through:


If you know the title of the journal, you can search Healey's ejournals for electronic journals. Follow these steps.

  1. From the Healey Library homepage select E-Resources
  2. Then click on Ejournals 
  3. Search for the journal title NOT the article title
  4. If the library subscribes to the journal, then you will see links to databases and/or publishers which contain full text articles with a specific date range
  5. Check the date of your citation against the date of the subscription. 
  6. Select the database or publisher link that fits your needs.
  7. Enter your campus username and password.
  8. Browse or search for your article.

In example below, the journal has a one year full text delay which means full text articles are not available online for the current year. If the library does not have an electronic subscription to the journal, then request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
