Q. 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 HTML buttons to read, download, or print the article.

PDF Full Text button highlighted on an EBSCO search result.

Don't see a PDF button? Click on the "Find it @ CSUDH Lib" button instead to see if the item is available in another library database, or if there is "No full text available" you can request a copy through Interlibrary Loan

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!
