How can I find the full text of an article in a database?


Most library databases link to the full text of an article as a PDF for other full text link options. If there is only an abstract or summary of an article in one of the library's article databases, click on the PDF or "Online full text" options to read, download, or print the article.

Don't see a PDF option? Click on the "Find @ CSUDH" button or "Full-text" instead to see if the item is available in another library database. These will link out to OneSearch and hunt through all of our resources. If we ever don't have the article you can request a copy through our interlibrary loan services in OneSearch.

Find it at CSUDH Library.

Still can't find the full text? Ask a librarian

Full-text options will vary by database, watch this short video "Finding the Full Text" for more examples!
