Finding Full Text: CINAHL / EBSCO Databases

Find Full Text with CINAHL or other EBSCO Databases

After selecting an EBSCO database, you will be presented with a search box. The name of the database is shown above the search box.

Example of search pages for both CINAHL and Academic Search Complete. Show that the database name is present above the search box.

Below each item in your results list, you will be presented with options for obtaining the full text of the article. For example, the following result shows the options HTML Full Text or PDF Full Text. Clicking on either of these options will open the article within the database window.

These options will not appear under every article. When neither HTML or PDF Full Text are available, look for the UNM Find Article link to check the library's holdings through the HSLIC catalog.

When Full Text is Hard to Find

  • Supplements can be difficult to find. Sometimes our subscription to a journal will not include them. If we have access to the supplements, you will often have to track them manually from the 'Additional Resources' page, checking multiple providers.
  • Some items don’t index or link well, such as things we can only get exclusively through a particular database. For these you may have to go into the individual database and use its search tool to find the item.
  • If you have trouble accessing something, please email
