Your Favorite Database: More There Than Meets the Eye!

Most Capella Library databases default to search only the full text available to you immediately in the Capella Library. When you are working on coursework, often with tight deadlines, this is helpful. fulltextebsco

However databases also classify articles in journals to which the Capella Library does not subscribe. So how do you see those articles?

In the lower part of the screen in most of our databases is a limiter box that usually defaults to being checked, labeled “Full Text”. If you uncheck this limiter you will see articles that may be in another Capella Library database by clicking the link Check Article Linker, or are not in the Capella Library and are available through Interlibrary Loan. So for example, if you are doing a long term project such as a dissertaton or major paper, you may want to remember to uncheck the full text limiter when you search and see all the articles the databases has classifed on your topic. fulltextproquest
