What does "Full Text" mean?


Full text indicates if searching the index or database will lead you to the complete text of an article or other source material (vs. an abstract or summary of that material). Please note that from off campus, EZproxy log in is required to access UBC-only resources and to see UBC eLinks to full text.

the resource does contain the complete content of a journal article, book chapter, dissertation or other source material. Examples: JSTOR, Wiley Online Library, cIRcle
