Access to full-text library resources from off-campus is easy!
Search as you normally do, click on the link to full-text, log in with your Pitt email login and password, and you're good to go for your entire searching session! Access will work best if you stay in the same browser.
If you’re looking for articles on a topic, search an Article Database.
Databases are collections of articles that you can search by topic or subject. Most of our databases offer links to the full text of articles.
If you have a citation to an article, search PittCat+.
PittCat+ will list all the journals we subscribe to either online or in paper. If the journal is online, the PittCat+ record will offer a link directly to the journal database. If the ULS doesn’t subscribe to the journal online, PittCat+ will list any paper volumes and issues we have of that journal.
You can also use the Citation Linker to see if the article you are searching for is available online.
If you’re off-campus . . try the E-journal search.
You can search by the journal title or International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) to find out if we have a particular journal online. If we do have the journal, you’ll be linked directly to the online subscription. Remember that not all journals or issues of journals are available online. To see if we have a journal either online or in paper, search PittCat+ for the journal title.
If we don’t have the journal or article you need, request the article for free through Interlibrary Loan.
