Your Brandman librarians are sad to tell you that we are experiencing a temporary glitch with the “Check for Full Text” button in our databases. Currently, it is linking to Simon Fraser University instead of our own library. Don’t despair. We do have a workaround. Here’s what you need to do.

1. Check your search results for the “Check for Full Text” option.

2. Next, check the details for the journal that the article appears in.

3. Once you have the name of the journal, go to the Leatherby Libraries homepage and type the name of the journal in the Journal Finder search box and click on “Search.”

4. In the Journal Finder results for your article, click on the title of the database that covers the time when your article was published.

Once you have accessed the journal, you can search by the title of your article or by the volume and issue it appears in. Remember, your Brandman librarians are here to help your through the process if you hit any snags.

We’ll keep you posted when we have more news about when this issue will be resolved. Until then, be sure to reach out.
