When searching for articles using Discovery Search or the Library Databases, look for the links within each record that will point you to the full-text if it is available.  The short video below shows you what this looks like using Discovery Search.

Discovery Search for Finding Books and Articles

Remember, though, that not all articles will be available full-text through our Library.  When the full-text of an article is not available, the Discovery Search and the Library Databases will provide a link to use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.  ILL allows you to request that an article be sent to you from another library.  This process is free and fast!  The short video below shows how it works when using an EBSCO database.
