To access the Library's subscription databases, when you are off-campus, you will automatically be asked to log in to the NYU EZProxy Server using your NYU NetID and password. Start at the library homepage to choose "articles via databases." Avoid trying to access via google or another search engine.
Why are there two options for full-text for some articles?
Sometimes NYU Libraries licenses full-text packages from third party vendors, so there are occasionally duplications.
There are two likely reasons: (1) There is no full text available or, (2) NYU Libraries does not have a license for access to full text of that journal. When a full text link is not available, your next option is to check the BobCat catalog to locate the title in print.
Why does the number of options in the SFX menu vary?
When you click on SFX, your computer connects to NYU's SFX database to see what services are available for the article. The only services that display are those that are available.
