  Getting full text

When you see Find@UF in your search results, click for access to digital full-text material.

In PubMed, if you have accessed it through the Library’s website, and you are in either the Abstract, AbstractPlus or Citation view and you see   Find@UF  then you should be able to get to the full text article electronically by clicking on this button. If these links don't work or if  you can't get to the full text at the source then double check through the  E-Journals list.

 If there isn't a "Find it @ UF" button double check the journal title in the E-Journals List.

For more complete instructions go see E - Journals tutorial or look at the Connecting With Full Text E-Journals PDF on the Help page of this LibGuide.  
If the Library does not own the item then you can  get a copy of the item by going through Interlibrary Loan.  Students at remote sites would use the same procedure  if the item is available only in print.  There are instructions and help available on the Help and Tutorials page of this LibGuide and my FAQ which is linked above.  


Databases & Free Websites

There are two documents. One contains databases to which UF subscribes and the 2nd one is a list of free websites that you might find useful after you graduate, including ones that contain free full text journal articles.

You need to double check the commercial drug information sites for their authoritativeness and currency. Check with your instructor for the acceptability of the .com sites before using them for an assignment.
