CLOSED UNIVERSITY HOLIDAYS
Situation 1: I found the citation online in MathSciNet (or another online index).
Situation 2: I have a print citation for the article.
If you have a citation for an article in print (from another journal article or a book), try using the Library's Journal and Article Locator to determine whether the Library has electronic access to the article.
Enter all the information you have available in the appropriate fields (note that Journal Name is required in order to perform the search). If possible, the Journal and Article Locator will bring you directly to the full text of the article, but in some cases it will bring you to a Discover Full Text Linking page, like those pictured above on this page.
Easy Search provides search results from multiple sources at one time, including SpringerLink, Google Books, and the library catalog. Notice that Easy Search can provide results by title and by chapter in SpringerLink, which means that you can use Easy Search to locate the electronic version of an individual chapter within a Springer book.
If you click on a link that takes you out of the library catalog to a publisher's website (for example, SpringerLink) you may be prompted for your NetID and password.Keep in mind that the library often has electronic access to new e-books well before the book actually appears in the online library catalog. That is why using Easy Search is a more effective method of finding e-books than searching the catalog.
If you identify a book of interest in MathSciNet (or another indexing and abstracting service), you can use the Discover Full Text link to search for the electronic copy of the book just as if you were searching for a journal article.
