To find full-text articles you can start either from our website or from within individual databases. This applies to journal, magazine, and newspaper articles.
Finding full-text articles on the Library Website
- Navigate to the library website.
- Type your keywords (subject, title, author, etc.) and press Go.
- Add limits on the results page. We recommend:
- Full Text Online, and
- Articles (and/or Newspaper Articles, depending on your needs)
Your results should now have full-text articles. Access articles from anywhere with your Seneca username and password.
Finding full-text articles within databases
- Find a database. You can do this either through a subject guide or the database list.
- Log in with your Seneca username and password. You'll open a search screen on login.
- Input your keywords.
- Look for a Full-text check box or limit. You may need to submit your search first. Often these limits are located underneath the search box or on the left-side of the results page.
e.g. In the image below, this database shows us two options for limiting to full-text content on our results page, and full-text articles are easily identified by a Full-text label.
Keep in mind that every database is different, but many do have full-text availability.
