Question

Q: Why can't I access Linked Full Text articles in SuperSearch?

Answer

Some of the articles found in SuperSearch are available in other databases.

  • Click the "Linked Full Text" link to go directly to the article in another database.
  • Click the "Full Text" link to go to a list of the databases that contain the article.
  • Click the "Find It" button to go to the library catalog record to find out where you can find the article and which years we have.

If the links in SuperSearch don't take you to the article (or a way to find the article), you can find the article using the citation (see below).

  1. On the library homepage, click the "Journal Holdings" tab (next to the "Books" tab).
  2. Either search for the title of the publication using the pull down boxes or click the Journals by Title link to browse for the title. (Ex. Anthrozoos)
  3. If the journal is displayed in the list, click the hyperlink of the database name (in red) to access it electronically. You can see the years that we own next to the database name. If it is in Print or on Microfilm you will need to come to the library to look at the publication.

You can find more information about searching the journal holdings in our FAQs.

If you are still unable to get the article, you should contact the Research Help Desk at 470-578-6325. They will need the name of the article and database name to assist.

How Do I Find An Article from a Citation?

The easiest way to find an article when you have a citation (information about the article) is to use SuperSearch. To find an article using SuperSearch, follow the steps below using a sample citation:

"Training Dogs and Training Humans: Symbolic Interaction and Dog Training."  Greenebaum, Jessica B. Anthrozoos. June 2010, Volume 23 Issue 2, p129-141.

From the SuperSearch tab (first tab on the library homepage):

  1. Type some of the article's title using quotation marks, but no other punctuation, into the search box (Ex. "Training dogs and training humans").
  2. Choose the Title button and press Search.
  3. Click on the .pdf of the article.

If you can't find the article in SuperSearch, try searching our Journal Holdings (third tab on the library homepage):

  1. On the library homepage, click the "Journal Holdings" tab (next to the "Books" tab).
  2. Either search for the title of the publication using the pull down boxes or click the Journals by Title link to browse for the title. (Ex. Anthrozoos).
  3. If the journal is displayed in the list, click the hyperlink of the database name (in red) to access it electronically. You can see the years that we own next to the database name. If it is in Print or on Microfilm you will need to come to the library to look at the publication.

Note: If we don't have access to the journal or article that you're looking for, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan for free.

Additionally, you may be able to find the article in an online open-access repository. For more information about this method, please contact digitalcommons@kennesaw.edu and include the article citation.
