What Do I Need to Install?

You don't need to install anything at all. Our FullTextFinder indicator will automatically appear in databases and Google Scholar (if you are on campus or connected via the EZproxy).

  • Google Scholar  
    Google search for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports on all topic areas. Use to find articles from academic publishers, professional societies, prepublication repositories and universities.

What is FullTextFinder?

FullTextFinder allows the researcher to "link" from within an online citation in a database to either the full-text reference or to other appropriate library resources or services to get to the information needed, hopefully the full text version.
