Citation & Full-text Databases
Citation databases (indexes and abstracts) provide a way to locate bibliographic citations for journal and newspaper articles. Many of these services track articles in a particular subject area. Once you have found relevant citations to articles using these indexes, you must then search the Library's Catalog to find out whether the Library owns the journals where the articles are printed, and to get call numbers for retrieving the journals. You can also check for electronic coverage of the journal on the Library's E-Journal site.
Full-text databases are databases that provide full text for the journal articles that they index. The availability of full-text articles depends on whether they are open access (free) or on the Library's subscription agreements with each publisher or aggregator.
Restricted use. Available only from networked Museum computers and off-site via the proxy server. Please see the off-site access instructions for more information. Also, please be aware of the usage restrictions that apply to licensed resources.
