Some databases provide direct access to the full text of an article, while others provide only a citation and an abstract or summary.
When doing a search off campus, log in to your library account before starting and search directly from the library website to get access to all the databases the library subscribes to.
Don't ever pay for articles! If you ever have trouble finding the full text of an article, contact the Ask a Librarian service.
When the full text of an article is not available, look for a button or link such as "Find it! @ Concordia", "Check CLUES", "Check availability at Concordia" or "Full text options".
Find It! @ Concordia helps you find the article you are looking for by allowing you to go directly from a citation in a database to the full text online or to a print version available at the Library.
If the PDF or HTML version of the article is not available, and the Find it! @ Concordia option does not work, contact a librarian for help.
