Finding the Full Text of an Article A Library Building Blocks video, brought to you by the University of Houston Libraries.
As a part of an assignment, your professor has asked you to find articles from a library database.
You pick your database, perform your search, and get a long list of results. But how can you start to read the articles you have found?
A Library Building Blocks video, brought to you by the University of Houston Libraries.
Typically, at the bottom of each result you will see buttons that will take you to the full text of the article. The buttons that you should see are: HTML Full Text, PDF Full Text, or both.
However, there are times where neither of these are present and instead there is a button with a UH that says: “Find This Item”
This button will still get you to the full text of the article, but through a slightly different path.
If you click the “Find This Item” button, you will be taken back through the UH Libraries website and one of two things will happen. Either you will be taken to the full text, or you will be taken to a UH Libraries page that asks you to place an interlibrary loan request.
