Finding Ful Text of Articles

The video provides a demonstration of the "discovery system" used by the Pitt library systems. It is designed to find book chapters, books, and articles available through the library systems. It can be overwhelming, but by searching a careful selection of terms and making use of the filters in the left menu, you may find some hidden gems available to you online, for free. The video walks through many of the features.

Once you feel comfortable with your topic, consider moving to a subject specific database, such as PubMed or APA PsycInfo.

The video above describes how to use the Pitt Library Systems discovery tool to find research articles, books, and book chapters. Use the HSLS link above, then enter your search terms in the text box. You can select online only, type of item (article, book, book chapter, etc.) at the next screen.
