  • Finding Articles
    GPRC Library
  • Choose a Database:
    Select Articles/Databases from the Library Homepage.
  • Choose your subject area:
    I’m going to choose Multidisciplinary.
  • Select the database:
    I want to search “Academic Search Complete”.
  • Enter your search terms:
    I’m looking for articles that talk about Facebookand privacy so I type in my search terms.
    I choose “Subject Terms” from the drop-down menu to make my search more specific.
  • Search Results
    There are 35 articles on my topic.
    The 2nd article looks like it might be appropriate and it’s available in full-text.
    I just need to click on the PDF Full Text icon.
  • Full-text:
    Here is the first part of the full-text of my article. The entire article can be viewed. I can also print or save it.
  • More detail:
    This article also looks interesting. I want more detail so I click on the title of the article.
  • I read the abstract and decide I want to get the full-text. So I click on the button.
  • Full-text in another database
    The article I want is full-text in the Elsevier SD College….database so I click on that database title.
  • Linking to another database
    I am taken to the database that contains the full-text of the article. I need only click on the PDF icon to get to the full-text.
  • Full-text!!!
  • Interlibrary Loan(ILL):
    This article is perfect for my paper.
    I click on the button so see if any GPRC database have the full-text.
  • Interlibrary Loan:
    None of the databases have the full-text so I need to use Interlibrary Loan to request the article.
  • Interlibrary Loan:
    I enter my Library barcode and PIN and click Submit.
  • Interlibrary Loan:
    My article information is automatically entered into the ILL form. When my article arrives I will receive an email in my GPRC email account letting me know that I can pick up the article at the Circulation Desk.
  • Now it’s time for you to try.
