Databases may have ...
1) Citations Only (make you aware of the resources, point you to the resource, often have UCeLinks available)
2) Citations AND Full-Text (e.g. JSTOR)
3) Combo (some citations will have full-text in html or PDF etc.)
Databases index resources.
Index: list; point to
Index: arrangement of materials
In many databases, full-text may be immediately available via a pdf or html page.
If full-text is not directly available, look for the UC-eLinks button to check for full-text elsewhere OR to request through Interlibrary Loan. Your UCMnetID functions as your library card number on the Request screen.
If you have a citation and/or the UC-eLinks button is not available, use the appropriate Request form (#3) on the Interlibrary Loan page.
The VPN allows you to connect to the library's online articles and ebooks from off campus.
