Leeds University Library

Find full text of an article

If you know which article you want, you can find out whether the Library can offer you access to it by searching for the article title in Search@Library

You will only be able to read the full text of an article if the Library subscribes to the journal in which the article was published.

If the Library does not have access to the material you need, you can order it through document supply or use another library.

Setting up Google Scholar to show which articles the Library subscribes to

  1. Go to Google Scholar
  2. Select the settings cog icon at the top of the screen
  3. Select Library links from the left hand menu, type Leeds into the search box, then select 'University of Leeds - Full text at the University of Leeds', and then select Save.  
  4. When you now do a search, a link "Full text at Leeds Uni" will appear at the right of each search result where Leeds has a subscription to that material.
