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


Not all articles are available in full-text.   Articles that include full-text 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 only a citation and/or abstract is available in the databases, you may see a link like the one of the ones shown below.



Click on the link to go to the article, or to see other databases which may have the publication or article that you are looking for.  We may also have the journal in print in the library (if so, you may see a link "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 Citation Finder from the top menu.  

If all else fails, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
