Q. How do I access the full text of an article from a database?
Full-text options will vary by database. These strategies will help you access full text in general across our resources.
1. After searching a database accessed from the library's website, look for a PDF button or icon. Often this will be on the left or right hand side of the screen depending on the database.
2. If you don't see a PDF button or icon, try looking for a "Find it @ CSUDH Lib" gray button. This will search our full-text options for anywhere we might have the article (such as another database) in a separate page.
3. If we have the journal article you'll see a link directly to the full text. Here's an example:
4. If we don't have the journal article you'll instead be directed to use our Interlibrary Loan services to request a copy.
If you need help accessing full text or finding a specific article, ask a librarian.
