What does CitationLinker do?

It helps you find the full text of articles. When doing research, you often find a citation or maybe an abstract, of an article in a database but the text of the article isn’t included. CitationLinker and its associated tools (360Link, eJournal Portal, Find it) will let you check all the other library full text resources to see if you can get the article either in a different database or in the library’s print or microform periodicals.


So, what's Find it @ FIU?

It's an OpenURL link resolver.  Basically, when you perform a search in one of the library databases, such as Gale's Academic OneFile, you will at times see a button/link labeled
"Find It @FIU" next to each article citation, like.

Clicking on this button will also provide you with any available full-text options for the article. Click on the blue highlighted text of the database name that reads "Find this article in" if available.
