New Full Text Direct Access Feature

By Marketing and Communications | 02-15-2019


Texas A&M University Libraries wants to make access to full-text content faster and easier. To that end, in the fall of 2018, we piloted a feature called direct linking in the Quick Search (all libraries except MSL) and all EBSCO databases. Direct linking uses the FindText@TAMU icon (FullText@TAMU icon in Google Scholar) to take you directly to the full text of items subscribe to by TAMU Libraries without stopping on an intermediary menu.

Based on the success of the pilot, on February 27th, we will extend direct linking to all Texas A&M University Libraries e-resources. You will have direct linking wherever you see a FindText@TAMU or a FullText@TAMU icon (Google Scholar). If we do not have a subscription to the desired content, a menu will display and you can request a copy through Get It For Me.

Please let us know if you encounter problems by reporting them to AskUs.
