Tips for Finding Articles in the MSU Libraries
Where do I start?
Are all journal articles available electronically?
Many journal articles can be accessed in full text from our databases but there are some titles that may only be available in print. When the full text is available you can read the read the entire article on your computer, print it out, save it, or even email it to yourself.
How do I find the full text of an article?
Some articles will be available electronically in full text. You will see a link or icon that says PDF or HTML full text when the full text is available through that database. You can find out if an article is available either as a full text electronic article or in a printed journal in the library by clicking on the Tour, Search for Full Text link in many of our databases.
Whenever possible you will get a link to the full text electronic article. If full text is not available, you may get links to check the library catalog or TDNet. TDNet will let you know what issues of a journal are available online or in print.
