How do I get the full text of an article I found in Google Scholar?

If you find an article in Google Scholar, you can check if the Library has full text by using the Journals by Title tool:

There you can search the library's holdings of online journals by title. If you are a frequent Google Scholar user, considering setting up Library Links in your profile for a quicker way to access full text.

Below is a picture of where the journal title appears in Google Scholar results.

In this result the journal title is Journal of the American Statistical Association, and the article is from 1979. We have the journal online through a variety of sources, for varying dates, as you can see in the screenshot below from the Journals by Title tool.

Since the article is from 1979, for this example, you would click the JSTOR link and navigate to the correct year and volume using that interface. Some databases allow you to search within the journal, with others you will have to browse to the correct article. If the Library does not have full text access to the journal for the volume/date that you are trying to find, and you are a currently enrolled UT Tyler student, faculty, or staff, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan.
