How do I find the full text of an article?

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.

librarian Librarian tip!

Don't ever pay for articles! If you ever have trouble finding the full text of an article, contact the Ask a Librarian service.

Downloading articles

In the Sofia Discovery tool, click on the "View fulltext" or "Access online" button. In article databases, look for a PDF or HTML link to the full text. If you do not see this option, look for the Find it @ Concordia button.
