What does "full-text" mean?


Full-text means you can read the entire article or book.

When you search in the library databases, you may see some articles that have a link for a PDF/HTML version of the article, and some that don't.  In the example below, the first article has the full-text available, but the second article does not.

Some databases don't have a separate link to the full-text of the article but may have a separate note indicating that you can't read it:

How can I make sure to only see full-text articles?

ECPI's databases have limiters that allow you to narrow your searches and make them more specific.  One of these limiters is full-text.  When you select the full-text limiter, you'll only see articles where you can read (and print) the entire article.
