Looking for full text?


Here are some tips on getting the full-text version of articles:

1. Look in the database that you are searching in. When you have found a citation you want, look for links marked Full-Text, PDF, PDF Full-Text, HTML Full-text, Linked Full-Text, or ArticleLinker. Some citations will have them; some will not. If it does, click on that link to get the full-text version of your citation.

2a. OUHSC users:

  • Go to our E-journals list,  under the OU-Tulsa Library’s E-Journals link.
  • In the search box, type the title of the journal you’re trying to find.
  • Choose the journal title from the list that appears, and follow the link to the full-text.
  • If your journal title doesn’t appear in that list, use our interlibrary loan service.

2b. OU-Norman users:

  • Go to Bizzell Library.
  • In the search box in the middle of the page, select the “E-journals” tab.
  • Type the title of the journal you’re trying to find.
  • Choose your journal title in the list that appears and follow the links to the full text.
  • If your journal title doesn’t appear in that list, use our interlibrary loan service.

3. Look in the OU-Tulsa Library, on our shelves. We have many journals in print. You can check the OU-Tulsa Library Catalog to see if we own a journal title.

4. If all else fails, use ILLiad, our interlibrary loan service. It is free for OU-Tulsa students, faculty, and staff, and we deliver articles to you electronically.  We can generally deliver most articles within a week, and sometimes even sooner than that.

Still confused? Need clarification? Email a librarian for answers, tips, searching advice, or to schedule a personal consultation.
