Clicking the button (or "Find Article" link) within a database produces the Journal Finder results page with direct links to one or more of the following:
Full text of the article
Table of contents or list of journal issues by year, which link to the full text of the article
Database home page, which must be searched to retrieve the full text
Library catalog (Discovery)
Various Custom links such as ILLiad (interlibrary loan request)
The same journal is often times available in more than one database. Journal Finder will display the links to all content accessible to the library.
In cases where Journal Finder can only take you to the journal's table of contents or a database home page, you will have to browse the table of contents to locate the issue and article you need, or search the database the retrieve the full text article. You can do a very targeted quick search by author and title.
This can occur for several reasons:
Full text articles are withheld from the online versions of the database by the publisher or author.
Metadata appears in a database before the publisher has made the full text available.
Changes to the coverage dates or full text content of a particular database have not been conveyed to the link resolver provider yet.
