Why can't I see the full text of an article in my search results?

The result list from a library database search should show a link that says "HTML text," "PDF text," similar to the one shown here:

If this is present, clicking on the link will retrieve the full text of the article.  If the article is citation only you may see a button like the ones shown below.


Click on the button to see other databases which may have the publication or article that you are looking for or if we have the journal in print in the library (if so, it will say Hultquist Library Print Periodical Holdings or Cattaraugus County Campus Library Print Periodical Holdings.) 

If you have found an article through an Internet search but the full text is only available through subscription, click on "Journals" under SEARCH COLLECTIONS on the JCC Library home page.  You can search or browse by subject or title to see if the journal is available through the JCC Library databases or print collection.  Also available on the JCC Libraries' Journal List page, if you have a full or partial citation for an article you can use the LinkSource Citation Finder.  

If all else fails, we can try to get the article for you through Interlibrary Loan (JCC Library Homepage under USE THE LIBRARIES.)
