Search the database with keywords and use filters to limit dates, types of resources, other terms, etc.
Use the full text links (pdf versions are preferred) within the database to view article
Use the "Find It' or "Full Text Finder" to link to full text articles available in other databases
If an article is not available at UWF, request it on Interlibrary Loan. Articles are delivered electronically free of charge, usually within a few days, from libraries owning the journal. You will be emailed when they articles are available.
The FINDIT link takes me to a database but I don't see my article; what do I do?
Sometimes, the link doesn't work as well as it should. If you are linked to another database, but not directly to the article, search the database by table of contents or by subject and author.
If FINDIT doesn't list a full text option, what do I do?
You may request the article from Interlibrary Loan. Be sure to identify yourself as a distance learner if you are requesting books and are over 50 miles from a UWF campus.
If I used OneSearch, do I need to use any other databases?
OneSearch, like many general databases, will include something on almost any topic and it includes results from many database but not all of them. The most comprehensive coverage of a topic is in a subject specific database such as PsycInfo for Psychology or ERIC for Education.
There is no book on my topic, what do I do?
Try using a broader or different term and use synonyms to make sure you are not missing relevant sources. Don't hesitate to ask for help from the librarians!
