I can only see a summary of the article in EBSCOhost. How do I get to the full text article?

EBSCOhost does not have the full text available for all articles it indexes. On the detailed record screen, check to see if there are links to the full text on the left-hand side of the page. If the article is only available in pdf format, you will need to click the link to open it. The HTML format of full text is located below the article citation and abstract.

You can limit your searches to retrieve only items with full text. On your results list screen, under "Refine your results," check the "full text" box.

If you need an article that the library doesn't own, you can request it through interlibrary loan.
