Full Text Finder: Online Access To Specific Article

Find free Iwasaki Library access to articles you've dug up in Google, Wikipedia, etc.

1. Start with citation for desired article.

Citation from Wikipedia? Bibliography of a book? References list from assigned article? 

2. Go to Select tab for Full Text Finder.

Current Emersonians have off-campus access to most online library resources via the homepage.

Pro Tip: Full Text Finder searches digital and print subscriptions to journals, newspapers, magazines, and trade publications.

3. Type the desired publication title into the search box.

Confused about article title vs. publication title? Have a look:

4. Check for title match in your results list.

Yes: Click tiny blue plus sign (+) under publication's title. Choose database with date range encompassing article publication date.

No: No title match? We don't have a digital subscription to the periodical. Request digital article delivery via Interlibrary Loan!

ProTip: "Emerson Library" link under Full Text Access means we have print holdings in the physical library.
