      What is it?
      Wilson Web is a collection of databases which contains many
      full-text articles on a variety of subjects.
      Use your mouse wheel or the left/right arrow keys to advance the slides
    • Forsyth Library Homepagewww.fhsu.edu/library
      Click “Find Articles & Databases”
    • “Find Articles & Databases” page
      Click Databases
    • Alphabetical List of Databases
      Scroll down and click
      Wilson OmniFile
    • Check “OmniFile” to search ALL the collections, or choose one or more of the collections to search
      Click “Database Descriptions” to find out more about each collection.
    • Advanced Search
      #1: Type in your
      search terms.
      For a more focused search, you can change All-Smart Search (keyword search) to title, author, etc. if desired.
    • Step 2:
      Limit your search if desired
      Step 3:
      Click Start
    • Results List when you limit your search to Full-Text Articles
      Usually get fewer results
      But the complete article is available for all 59 results.
    • Results List without limiting to Full-Text
      Yields More Results
      Some results do not have full-text available, others do
      No Full-Text Link
    • To limit or not to limit?
      The most efficient way to search is usually to begin by limiting to Full-Text articles only. That way you know you will have access to all the articles you find.
      If you do not find enough articles, broaden your search by removing the limit to full-text, and/or by changing your search terms to something less specific.
    • “Get Article” link
      Articles that are not full-text in WilsonWeb will have a “Get Article” link. Click this link to search our other databases for the full-text of the article.
    • This article was found in the database Sage Premier
    • If the article is not found, you will see this screen:
      Don’t give up yet!
      It is possible we have the article in PRINT. Ask a librarian how to find out.
      If we do not have it in print either, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan
      (on-campus students).
      In other databases, the “Get Article” function is called “LinkSource”
    • For Distance Students
      If you cannot find the full-text of the article you need by using Get Article/LinkSource, you can request it through Distance Services:
      OR send an e-mail containing the complete article citation to: refserv@fhsu.edu
    • Questions? Just ask!
