You may find that a database you are searching will give you only an abstract of an article without the full-text. Sometimes a database will have an embargo, meaning that the most recent content may not be available in full-text. For this reason, the library subscribes to a variety of databases, so there is a good chance that you can get immediate access to the article you are looking for.

To find your article in full text, first take note of the name of the journal in which you found the article and the issue and year. Then go to the Journals A-Z list found on our homepage: http://library.tctc.edu/

For example, if you were looking for an article from 2010 in the journal, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, you would select "A" on the journal browse list and then select "AN" and look alphabetically. Then you will see a list of which of our databases include articles from that journal, and which years are covered. Just select the database that covers the years for the journal during which your article was written. You should then be able to browse and find the exact issue in which your article can be found.
