Full-Text Tools for Finding Articles Print Page

In This Guide...

These are the major tools for USF researchers seeking law review and journal articles on legal topics they are researching.

There are great full-text tools as well as some excellent non-full-text tools for finding articles.

For more information about the features, pros and cons of each tool, see the Tips, Advice, and Comparisons section of this guide. 

For specific search techniques, see the downloadable "cheat sheets" below.

(For non-legal articles see Gleeson Library's Databases page.)

Is the Journal I Need at USF?

So you have a citation to a great-sounding article — but not direct link to the full text....

How do you tell if the article is available at USF?

Just use USF's "Journal Finder" to look up the title of the journal that published the article. If that journal is available at USF, it will (usually) show up in the journal finder.  

(One caveat: the Journal Finder doesn't tell you if a journal is on Westlaw or on Lexis Advance.)

  • Journal Finder - USF Libraries
    Enter the title of the journal to see if USF has the journal and article you need. (A link to "USF Print and Online Journal Holdings" means that one of the USF libraries has the journal - or some years of it - in print.) (For off-campus access to digital journals in your Journal Finder results, enter your last name and USF ID number.)
