Physics and Optical Science Research Guide: Find Articles

Databases and Indices

Atkins Library subscribes to over 300 databases and indices.  Many of these are full text but not all.  If an article is available in a full text format there will be a "PDF" or "HTML" link within the record. 

If an article is not available full text through one database, we may be able to obtain it from another database or the library may have a print subscription.  If this is so, there will be a green icon within the record. Clicking here will take you to a page with additional information.  It may offer a link to another database or to the Atkins Library catalog. 

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a form of resource sharing among libraries nation- and world-wide. When a book or other item needed by a UNCC user is checked out, unavailable for some other reason, or not owned by the library, a patron may request that it be borrowed from another library by submitting an interlibrary loan request.
