Quick Tips

Finding the Full Text in a Database Search

The Find It @ SJU! button will appear on a record if the article's full text is not available within a particular database. 

Click on the Find It @ SJU! button and a window will pop up showing if we have access to the full text in another online database or in print. If it is not in our collection at all, you will be offered an Interlibrary Loan form.
