Using the Articles Search

To search millions of articles licensed by UW-Madison all at the same time, go to the UW-Madison Libraries homepage and choose “Articles” from the drop-down menu. You can search by topic search terms or a specific title.

Finding the Full Text of an Article in Article Search

To find the full text of an article in Article Search, click on the “View It” link.

  • If we have the full text of the article online, the next screen will say “Full Text Available At:” followed by the link to the database through which we have licensed the full text.
  • If the next screen says “No Full Text Available,” you can still get access to this article by clicking on the “Request a Copy” link. UW-Madison Libraries will purchase online access at no cost to you. A PDF copy of the article will be sent to your school email as soon as it is available.

  2. Select “Databases” from the drop-down menu
  3. Click on the “Browse by Subject/Type” link below the Databases search bar. This will take you to a comprehensive list of databases licensed by UW-Madison
