The Multi-Search on the library home page and many of the databases listed on the A-Z Database List have an option to limit your search to full text online resources only.

When using the Multi-Search;

  1. Enter your keywords
  2. Click “Search”
  3. Then, look to the left side of the screen where there is a column of options listed under “Refine Results.”
  4. Click on the option “Full Text.”

Many of the databases on the “A-Z Database List” have a similar column of options on the left side of the screen to refine your results after running a search. The full text option may say “Full Text,” “Linked Full Text,” “Full Text Only,” etc.

EBSCO Databases
