4 Easy Steps to Finding Full-text articles

Using the THP Library Resources



Getting Started

Online Journal List

Searching for articles on a topic, start with Step One - THP OneSearch or Step Two - Database Searching

Step One: THP OneSearch         

Located on the THP Hub Library page use the THP OneSearch tool to run a keyword search for books, articles, journal titles, and more. OneSearch lets you search through all of THP Library's databases and subscriptions in one place. Use the Advanced Search option to run a more targeted search, using specific fields (e.g. title, author or keyword), and using Boolean logic (AND/OR). 

Search results will include links to the full-text PDFs where available.

Where full-text is not available, an order form will be generated. Add your contact information, and library staff will track down the full text for you.

 If you have any questions or run into any issues - Go to Step 4
