Finding Full Text: Check Availability

How to find full-text when starting from a citation


LinkSource is a software program that connects ISU databases together to allow access to full text. ISU uses the link Check For Availability or Check For Full Text. If full text is not available in your current database, click Check For Availability to see if it is full text within another ISU database. A new window will open on your computer. If possible, you will be linked directly to the full text article, but sometimes you are linked to the journal page and you have to browse to the appropriate date, volume, issue, and page numbers.

DO NOT BUY THE ARTICLE. If you are given an option to buy an article, don’t! Use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to get the article for free. ILL costs are covered by your tuition.
