Q. I found an article using Google Scholar. Can I get the full text?

Answer

Some citations in Google Scholar include the full text, some do not. On the results page in Google Scholar, look at the right side of the page. Look for citations that read like this:" [PDF] from xyz.edu", or "[html] from jstor.org". The appearance of such a link USUALLY means that you can get the full text.

If there is no link to full text at all, you can still try to find the full text through the library's own resources. Search for the journal title or the article title, in Marian's Catalog to see if the library has access to it.

If the library does not have access to the article you can request the article via interlibrary loan.

Additionally, if you frequently use Google Scholar, you should try using Google Scholar@Marian we have integrated our library electronic resources in this instance of Google Scholar as well as the interlibrary loan form.
