The Victorian Period (350:35548:01): Finding Full Text

Literature of the Victorian Era in historical context

The Google Scholar Advantage

Using Google Scholar as a Rutgers database can offer advantages when looking for the full text of known articles.  Google Scholar frequently offers links to Full Text@Rutgers or another PDF if the item is available on the open Web or in certain Rutgers-restricted databases.  In addition, Google Scholar will search standard periodical title abbreviations, such as those used in Medline or PubMed (Index Medicus format), which other databases usually will not.

 

Use the Advanced Scholar Search to look for your article.  If searching author name, use just the last name to avoid problems with variant initials and so forth.  One efficient search is author last name plus exact phrase searching, in which you can use some exact phrase from the title of the article.  You can also specify journal name and date if you wish.

 

References from Google Scholar can also be exported into RefWorks if you change the Scholar Preferences on the browser you are using.

Four Ways to Find Full Text

  • Click on Article Linker to search for the article in Rutgers holdings automatically

  • Search the Rutgers library catalog, to find all owned copies of an article in a periodical in electronic, paper, or microform.

      • Click on Search Library Catalogs to find the periodicals owned by the Rutgers Libraries. Search PERIODICAL TITLE begins with; this title is often found in periodical indexes under "Source".

      • Look at the periodical record. (The online record for a given periodical title may be separate from the print record, but is usually found within the non-microform record as electronic access.)
