Learn how to use the FullTextFinder
Last Updated: Nov 26, 2013
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.
- Google Scholar Preferences
Select library links, type in WPI if FullTextFinder doesn't already appear in the listing.
- Full text may be available for an article, issue or journal.
- If no full text is available, try Google Scholar or looking up the item in the WPI Library Catalog.
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.
