CHEM 403 - Seminar: Find Scientific Articles

How do I *get* the article?

In most of our databases, you will either see a sign next to each of your search results that indicates full-text access via an html link , or else a sign that indicates full-text access via a PDF link .  When those two options are not available, you will see the Find It button - .  Clicking on this link will provide you with other possible options to get the article.  These options could include:

  • full-text links through a different database than the one you were originally searching in
  • full-text access through our print holdings of that particular journal title
  • a link to Inter-Library loan the article, if we don't have it for you any other way

A few of our databases that like to play rogue - namely SciFinder Scholar and ScienceDirect - don't have this FindIt button in their interface, but have other similar linking options that help you to search all possible avenues for the article you want!
