Find full-text articles using the library search. Type in your search keywords (subject, title, author, etc.) and click 'Go'. Under Availability choose 'Full Text Online'. Your results will automatically be updated to full-text articles only.

Aletrnatively, databases can be searched directly. Most databases will give you the option to limit your search to full-text articles. To choose a specific database, click on the Databases tab on the Seneca Libraries homepage.  

Once you’re in a database, look beneath the search box for a "search options" section. The full-text limit option is usually a check box.

If you don’t see any search options, check that you are in the "advanced search." If you still can’t find a "full-text" option, the database you’re using may not have any full-text articles indexed and you should try a different database.
