Answer

It is important to know if you are on campus or off campus!

On-campus users: 

  • If the article is available via the Bentley Library's databases, or is freely available online, you will see a link in the right hand margin of the page. "Full-text @ Bentley" links will connect you to the article in one of the Bentley Library's databases.
  • If you do not see the "Full-Text @ Bentley link", if the document is not freely available online, or if the link does not work, you may:
    • search for the journal in the library's Journal Finder*
    • search for the book in Encore or the classic catalog
    • ask for assistance at the Reference Desk

Off-campus users:

  • Did you initially access Google Scholar using the Google Scholar link provided on the Bentley Library's website? http://scholar.google.com.ezp.bentley.edu/schhp?hl=en&lr=  If you use this link, you will be authenticated as a Bentley user and will see "Full-text @ Bentley" links to articles when available. "Full-text @ Bentley" links will connect you to the article in one of the Bentley Library's databases.

  • If the article is available via the Bentley Library's databases, or is freely available online, you will see a link in the right hand margin of the page. "Full-text @ Bentley" links will connect you to the article in one of the Bentley Library's databases. Please note that when you click on a "Full-text @ Bentley" link from off-campus, you may be prompted to enter your Bentley username and password. 

  • If you do not see the "Full-Text @ Bentley" link, if the document is not freely available online,  or if the link does not work, you may:
    • search for the journal in the Journal Finder*
    • search for the book in Encore or the classic catalog
    • ask for assistance at the Reference Desk
