VIDEO: Requesting a Full-Text Article through UC-eLinks

Have an article you want to read that isn't available in full-text through the library databases? Learn how to request the full-text of articles through UC-eLinks (UC Merced Library, 1:34).

Accessing Full Text

First Option: Look for PDFs or HTML documents in a database.

Second Option: Look for the UC-eLinks button. UC-eLInks will look for full-text elsewhere.

If UC Merced does not have a copy, use "Request this item ..." link in the UC-eLinks window to Interlibrary Loan. Your library card/account number is your UCMnetID e.g. sdavidson2.
