Full Text in Google Scholar

After setting your preferences, you can now search Google Scholar and access Gumberg's resources.

After finding a resource, click the Find It @ Duquesne link on the far right to access Gumberg library's resources. 

This will redirect you to new page with a list of databases where the article can be found. Select one and click GO.

 

If the Find It @ Duquesne does not appear on the right, try these three options:

  1. Click on a link if it appears on the far right. The link usually contains the resource in HTML or PDF formats.

  2. Click on the title of the document. If the resource asks for a payment, do not purchase the article or book.

  3. Click Find It @ Duquesne beneath the citation information. You can request the material through ILLiad.

If these do not work, you can try locating the material through the Library Search link that appears below the citation information. This redirects you to WorldCat, the global library catalog. Note that if you find the material at a local library, you still may not be able to use the resource if you are not affliiated the library.

Another option is to enter the citation information into Citation Linker. If you still cannot find full text, please contact a librarian.

  • Remember: If you are connecting from off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your MultiPass credentials or your student ID number before the article will open. If you are searching from on campus, the article will be opened automatically.
