Full Text

The complete electronic text of an article is called the full text. Some databases, like Academic Search Premier and LexisNexis, provide many full text articles online. The full text article may be in PDF or HTML format. Some HTML format articles won't include photos that appeared with the original article.

If an article database doesn't offer the full text of an article, it will usually offer an Article Linker or Find Full Text link that you can use. These links will look for the full text of the article in the other article databases the Library subscribes to.
