Researching Articles: Reading an Article

A guide on how to locate, access, and utilize articles from databases like EBSCO.

Reading an Article

  1. Under article descriptions, there are options for:
    1. PDF full text
    2. Link to full text
    3. Request through interlibrary loan
    4. HTML full text
  2. The benefit of HTML text is that it does not require a download, but you will need to login using IU credentials when accessing from home .
  3. Link to full text will often direct you to a journal that you may access when using your IU credentials

Article Tips

  • Select a Permalink when saving an article for later reading because it is easier to access outside of campus WiFi. 
  • Create an ILLiad account through IU in order to request books from other campuses. 
  • Selecting the folder icon, to the right of an article title, will add it to your personal folder for easy retrieval at a later date.
