Total Access@PacificU

If you are in a library database, odds are that the article is already available to you in a .pdf (in some cases, .html) format.  If that is the case, click the .pdf icon to open the article.

However, there will be times when the full-text article is not immediately available to you.  When that happens, you have two choices:  (1) see if the article is in another library database, (2) or order it using Interlibrary Services.  Either way, you use a link called Total Access@PacificU.

However, there are exceptions to Total Access@PacificU

  • PUBMED uses Online Full-Text Icon for Pacific University Library
  • ProQuest Databases uses Find a Copy
