Guide on finding full-text using Find it! @NUS Libraries with Google Scholar, PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science and more.

What's Find It! @NUS Libraries?

When you scroll through search results in our databases (eg. Scopus) or Google Scholar, you may notice little icons like the above, or links labelled "Find It! @ NUS Libraries". These buttons or links help you get to the full-text articles. When you click each of them, the system checks whether the respective full-text is available in NUS Libraries.

Why use the "Find It! @ NUS Libraries" button?

Some databases only display title & abstracts, with no access to full-text. The Find It! @ NUS Libraries button will help to check if the article is available online in our journal subscription.

Note: Clicking on Find it! @ NUS Libraries may not work under these scenarios:

  • NUS Libraries do not have access to the online version of the full-text.

  • There is a technical issue preventing a successful link to the online version of the full-text.

In such cases, you may have to resort to manually searching for the journal title in either the  LINC catalogue or  FindMore search engine to check if the required journal is available in print.
