When searching for articles using article databases, the full-text article may not be attached to the citation. If not, look for this icon next to the article citation to see if the library owns it and, if so, access it:
When you retrieve articles, you will get the article's citation. This is the information you need to know to find and cite the article. Below is an example of a citation:
Use a truncation or wildcard symbol at the end of a word or root word to retrieve variant word endings, including plurals.
It makes a search more efficient by decreasing the number of searches while retrieving more results. Most databases use * as the truncation symbol.
Examples: feminis* retrieves: feminism, feminist, feminists
environment* retrieves: environment, environmental, environmentalist, etc.
muslim* retrieves muslim, muslims
If the library doesn't own a book or article that you need, you may request it from another library via Interlibrary Loan. This service is free for UVM students, faculty, and staff. An article is delivered electronically and usually arrives within a few days. Book requests are generally filled within a week.
If you are making a request for the first time, you will need to register for the service before making a request.
Find more details and a link to the request forms. There is also a link ("ILL/DD" green button) on the Library homepage.
Links from the Libraries websites (databases, journal articles, electronic resources) are automatically proxied for off campus use and you do not need to do anything else. If you haven’t already authenticated, attempting to access a library resource will generate a UVM log-in screen for you to enter your NetID and password.
NOTE: In order to access UVM subscription articles when using Google Scholar from off campus, make sure to access Google Scholar from the library - available on the Research Databases page.
