CHEM 1001: Article Evaluation Exercise: Full Text

Full Text for Popular Sources

Accessing the Full Text of an Article

Most of the time, you will be taken to the full text of an article directly from the list of popular sources. Some sites, like the New York Times, have a limit on the number of articles that you can read without having a subscription. If you receive a message that you have exceeded your number of free articles, try looking in the library's catalog to see if we have already paid for a subscription to a particular resource.

You can do this by searching for the source by name in the library catalog on the library website.

Search the source title or the article title in the Compass search box on the library homepage

If the library has access, click the "Online Access Available" link below the item title on the search results page. Click any of the hyperlinks after "Access via" to search for your particular article. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask the Research Center how you can obtain access.
