Faculty & Staff Resources: Full Text Articles

Library Databases

The UWW libraries subscribe to over 290 databases (total), most of which can be used to locate periodical articles, as well as book chapters, books, and more. Other databases the libraries have contain legal cases, business information, and other types of specialized information. Online databases and Research@UWW are two ways to find books, government documents, videos, and recent articles. If you need older articles, or cannot find any articles on your topic using Research@UWW or online databases, Ask a Librarian for assistance in person, over the phone, by email, or through chat. You may also choose to make an appointment with a librarian. Databases and Research@UWW list articles that may or may not be owned by the Library, in which case you can try to borrow them from another library.

Databases, Research@UWW, and the full text content they contain can be accessed both on and off-campus.

Find a Journal, Magazine, or Newspaper

Research@UWW Journal Search button

Have you found the citation for an article you want in another article's bibliography or on Google Scholar? You can use the libraries' Journals Search to see whether and where the Whitewater libraries has the periodical (journal, magazine, or newspaper) that the article came from. Start by typing the periodical title (not the article title) in the box below. This is also available from the libraries' homepage.


Find the Full Text

journal articlesMost databases have some full text articles in addition to article citations. When an article is not available in that database, use Find It button button/link to determine whether and where the UWW libraries have it.

In Research@UWW, go to the View It section of an article's record.

In either case, look in the View It section next to see if there is a link to the online article. If it is not online, scroll down to the Get It section to see if the article is physically in one of the UWW libraries. If it is not available either way, you may order the article by clicking on the We Can Get it for You (Document Delivery/ILLiad) link which will appear in the Get It area.

If you are not in a database or Research@UWW, use the Journal Search (also on the libraries' homepage) to determine whether and where the Library has a particular periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper, etc.), then search the periodical for the desired article.
