Q

I have found an article I want on PubMed, but only an abstract is available. Where can I find the full text?

The article is about veterinary science.

Answer

The first thing to do is check to see if the full text is available through the library.  To do so, follow the link below to our Databases by Subject Libguide and select the Science tab.  Select EBSCO: All Science Databases.  Once in the database, try searching for the title of the article.  You can make your search more specific by placing the title in quotes.

If the article is not available through our databases, you can check to see if the full-text is available on the web.  Go to Google Scholar through the link below and again search for the title.  Most of the time you will only find citation information about the article, but sometimes the full text will be available as well.

If the full text is not available through either of these methods, you can use the Interlibrary Article Request form available through the link below.  Fill out the required information, and COM Library will then attempt to obtain the article from another library.
