Finding full text in PDF or html
1. The article is linked to full text from the citation record in the database. You may see the Adobe Acrobat PDF symbol or "html full text" after the citation, abstract and subject headings.
2. Click on PDF or "Full text" in the citation record. You will be connected immediately to the article or to the publisher's page for the article where you can then select PDF. If the University Libraries does not subscribe to the journal, you will see a page offering you the option to perform a quick search of the library catalog which includes records of all journal holdings owned by the University Libraries. By clicking on “Search the library catalog by Title,” you can verify that electronic access is not available. You may also discover that print holdings are held in one or more of the Rutgers libraries. This may influence your decision to check the shelf or request an electronic copy of the article.
3. Search the library catalog directly to find information about all journal holdings including their extent and their format.
4. Consult the listing of Electronic Journals and Publications: https://browzine.com/libraries/1726/subjects
When the University Libraries doesn’t own a journal title you want, you may request a copy of the article from another academic library. This process usually takes 2-4 days, and you will be notified by email when the article has arrived. The email message will contain a link to your article.
