About full-text access

Through its database subscriptions, Olin Library has full text access to a great many articles.  In many cases, a link to an HTML or PDF version will appear in database search results.  If full text isn't available in the current database, you can click on the Find It button.  This button will check other databases, let you know if the library has the article available online or in print, or allow you to request an article using Interlibrary Loan.

Multidisciplinary Databases

  • Academic Search Premier
    A multidisciplinary database with full text for more than 4,700 popular and scholarly journals and other resources. Contains a wide variety of journals for art, art history, archaeology, and architecture. Resources date from 1975 to the present.
    Multidisciplinary, but offers full text access to more than 200 art and art history journals, museum bulletins, and other content. It's a good idea to narrow your search by discipline. Note that some current publications may be behind a "moving wall" and unavailable--meaning that you may need to look elsewhere for the latest research on your topic.
  • Project MUSE
    Full-text access to scholarly journals with a primary focus on the humanities and social sciences.
  • ProQuest Direct
    Like Academic Search Premier, a great multidisciplinary database with lots of full text available.
  • Find Anything (Olin Discovery)
    A library search engine covering almost all of Olin's print and digital holdings, including more than 90% of the full text journals available through our databases and all the books in our collection. Refine search results to see just scholarly articles, or refine by content type, subject, date, or language.

Use the citations for local searches or Interlibrary Loan requests. The databases are searchable together and cover articles published between 1975 and 2007. Includes journals as well as books, conference proceedings, dissertations, and exhibition and dealer catalogs.
  • Historical Abstracts
