Where's the PDF?
Once you've used an article database to find articles on your topic, you may need to use this button: in order to locate and read the full text of the article.
UC-eLinks will link you to the online full text of an article if UCB has paid for online access; otherwise, UC-eLinks will help you locate a print copy on the shelf in the library. If UCB doesn't own the article in print or online format, UC-eLinks can also help you order a copy from another library.
