When a resource is available online through BenSearch, it will either have the status of "Available Online" below the title of the resource, or a direct link to the resource (typically as a PDF). For some periodicals (journals, newspapers, etc.), the issue contents are also directly linked so you can easily explore the other items published in that specific issue.
Off-campus, you may be asked to enter your Benedictine University login information.
You now have access to the full text article.
For search results beyond the Benedictine Library Catalog, BenSearch uses a centralized index that encompasses hundreds of millions of records of global or regional significance that are harvested from primary and secondary publishers and aggregators. The number of records is constantly growing as additional data sources are added. Bringing these results back to BenSearch and attempting to “blend” them in with the rest of the results from the central index sometimes causes significant issues and errors.
Should you have difficulty retrieving an article, please ask a Librarian for help or search for articles using the EBSCO Articles tab on the library homepage.
Note: Only selected databases are included in an EBSCO Articles search. Click on the Databases link on the red toolbar on the library webpage to access all the library databases.
