Finding Full Text


Looking for full text of an article? The UB Libraries subscribe to hundreds of electronic databases and thousands of electronic journals. Your affiliation with the University at Buffalo allows you to access these resources from anywhere using your UBIT name and password.

Save time by starting your search at the Health Sciences Library website. Choose your database. Do your search. Look for one of these icons:

full text article linker

Note: In PubMed, the icon is only viewable after you click on an article title or adjust your preferences so that the abstract displays on the results page.

search for article icon

icon for full text articles in PUBMED

icon full text as pdf

icon full text as html

Click on the icon and, if the full text is available, it will appear.


What if my article doesn't just show up? What if I see this?

Don't despair. Simply click the Place Delivery+ Request link and you'll have an electronic copy of that article often within 24 hours. Turn-around time varies depending on whether or not the University Libraries already have the article in print and when you submit your request (it's usually quicker during the week).

Visit the Delivery+ page for more information.
