Fulltext links are often built into our research databases.

Looking for a Specific Article?

If you are looking for a specific article, you can use a tool like the PubMed Single Citation Matcher.

Citation Matchers are useful tools that help locate individual journal articles based upon the information contained within its citation.  These tools let you search for one or more of the following basic elements to find a specific article:
  • Author name
  • Title words
  • Journal name
  • Year or Date of publication
  • Volume, Issue, or Page #

Note that not all journals are covered by these citation finders.

Alternately, searching under the A-Z Journals List will identify whether or not the Ascension Wisconsin Libraries own a particular journal and will provide a link, if the journal is available online. This search does not locate individual articles within a given journal, but once you've accessed the journal electronically, you can navigate to the year, volume, issue and page number of the article you are seeking.

Looking for articles on a specific topic?

If you are looking for articles on a specific topic, go to the library's Database List to find an appropriate database for your subject. If you need help deciding which databases would be most useful to your query, please contact one of your Librarians.
