Get Full Text Online
UGA affiliates can access full-text in various ways. Several options are listed below.

More Full Text Options
- Google Scholar
Use Google Scholar to find full-text articles and books.
Articles: Click on View It @ UGA or other PDF links to check for full-text.
Books: Click on the arrow icon under each result. Then select Get It @ UGA to read or request.
- Browser Plugins
Install browser plugins like LibKey Nomad to get Open Access and UGA licensed full-text via Google Scholar, Wikipedia, publisher pages, and other sites. Once installed, you'll see a popup that will authenticate you to allow access.
Browzine also lets you browse, read, save, and monitor scholarly journals in your subject areas on your mobile device or desktop/laptop.
- Journal/Publisher Sites
Many journals and publishers now allow UGA users to access licensed full-text directly. If content providers are configured to do this, you may see one of the following sign-in options:
- "Login through your institution"
- "Federated login"
- "Sign In"
Select University of Georgia from the institution list and sign-in using your MyID.
SpringerNature, Wiley Online Library, Elsevier/ScienceDirect, Oxford University Press, and SAGE are some of the major publishers that provide this option.
- Creating Persistent Links
If UGA Libraries subscribes to a resource, creating persistent links can connect your URL or DOI to licensed full-text.
- Journal Search
If you have an article citation, you can search for the journal title to check for online full-text or print copies.
- VPN & VLAB
VPN and VLAB do not make your off-campus computer or device appear to be on campus. While they connect to the campus network, most of our e-resources are hosted elsewhere. Therefore, you will still need to login with your myid or other methods on this guide.
