Many online databases link to full text articles, either directly or through the library's LinkSource service. If the article is not available full text, LinkSource can search the library's holdings for a print copy of the article. LinkSource also facilitates an Interlibrary Loan request when a Dupré Library copy is not available. Look for the Link Source logo when using online databases.
We recommend that you always begin your research through the library's home page, library.louisiana.edu. However, if you sometimes use Google Scholar, make sure to adjust your settings to include the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in your library links. Google Scholar will automatically include links to Dupré Library when the full text is available.
