What is Find It @ USC?
Find It @ USC is a software package that links journal citations in Ovid MEDLINE, PubMed
and other databases to ways to find the cited articles. These
include electronic full text (when available),
online library catalogs, and document delivery options.
How do I use Find It @ USC?
Click on the Find It @ USC icon next to a citation for a menu
of options. Select a full-text option when available.
What should I do if there is no fulltext available from
the Find It @ USC menu?
- To locate print journals, select one of the catalog options
- To request copies from other libraries, use one of the inter-library loan option
Why does the Find It @ USC link sometimes take me to the journal’s
home page or table of contents rather than the full text of the journal?
Find It @ USC links take you as close as possible to the full text of an
article. In some cases you will have to jot down or remember the citation
information and navigate the publisher’s site to find the article
Why are there more than one full text option for some journals?
The library purchases some of its electronic journals in collections
rather than individually and some journals are included in more than
one collection. The format may differ among full-text versions of the
same journal. If the version you first open does not offer PDF format,
you can look for an alternate version in which PDF might be available
Why am I being blocked from accessing the full text?
