How do I find full text articles online?

Most general topics can be searched using the QuickSearch tab in Find It Fast (or the search box from the articles tab on the Libraries main page). Simply enter the topic in the search box, select the QuickSet you would like to search and click Go.

Quick Search

Click on the title to find out more about the item.  Click on the SFX or Full Text icons to search for full text.

In some cases, you may have to search for the article again in the resulting window, but in most cases, the link will take you directly to the full text.

Quick Search Results

To perform a more detailed search, use the Advanced tab on the QuickSearch screen.

You can also search the database’s native interface, which usually offers more search options. See How do I find a database by subject? or How do I find a database by name?
