Trouble Finding Full Text?

Options when full text does not appear to be immediately available in a database: 

  • Try the FindIt! via LinkSource option if available in the database you are using, if available
  • If you are in an open access (i.e., public) database, try your search in ODU Library databases for full text 
  • Search ODU Library Catalog to see if the journal in which the article is published is available in print or online through ODU Library
    • Do a Title search for the journal & check to see if the appropriate volume & issue are available
    • If the needed journal volume &issue are not available from ODU Library, search the OhioLINK Library Catalog 
  • Search EBSCO A-to-Z for OhioLINK to see if the journal is available in another database
  • If the above options fail, request a copy via Interlibrary Loan
  • Ask a librarian for assistance at any time
