Find articles in full text
To find full text of articles:
- Try the SFX button (or any link that says full text) in the database, if one is present. Note: For this to work in PubMed you must use the Vera PubMed url: http://libraries.mit.edu/get/medline-pm.
- Next, search for the name of the journal in Barton.
- Vera will indicate whether the journal is online.
To find full text of books:
- Use Barton to search for authors, titles, and keywords.
- Field trip: If you're going to use collections beyond the offerings of MIT Libraries, you can request access privileges at Harvard Medical School's Countway Library.
- If MIT does not own what you need, Interlibrary Borrowing is also an option. Allow 1-5 work days for most articles, so plan ahead!
