CiteLinker is a tool powered by software called UResolver which links you from an article citation in a database to the full text of that article. This is necessary because some of our databases contain full text and others just contain citations to articles. Before Article Linker, these databases did not link to one another.
Click on the button or link with the words "Check for full-text" to access the CiteLinker services
The CiteLinker menu page offers options and services related to that article. You may:
If the full text of the article is not available online, you may:
Not all of our databases are configured to work with Cite Linker yet, but more will be added. Some databases do not currently support the UResolver technology.
Contact our Information Services team to find out if a specific database is enabled with Cite Linker (Uresolver).
CiteLinker links will appear in databases licensed by Unitec Library for Unitec staff and students. These databases and CiteLinker links are available to anyone using Unitec computers on all Unitec locations. Wireless or remote access is also be available if you login with your Unitec username and password.
On-campus: When you do a search in Google Scholar you will see a link to "full-text @ Unitec" when we subscribe to the journal. Click on that link to access the full-text of the article.
Off-campus: You need to set Preferences in Google Scholar as follows:
Possible reasons include:
In any of these cases, check the Unitec LibrarySearch catalogue for online or print versions.
There is overlap among our electronic journal collections and databases, so sometimes you will find that the full text is available from more than one source.
The UResolver will try to get you as close as it can to the full text of the article. Often, because of the structure of the journal publisher's web site, Uresolver cannot link directly to full text. Sometimes the best UResolver can do is to take you to the table of contents or the journal's home page, and you will have to navigate the publisher's site yourself to get to the full text. Essentially, a full text link in UResolver means that full text is available, but you may have to follow a few extra links to get to it.
The CiteLinker option for checking availability in the Unitec Library Catalogue is a very convenient feature that works most of the time, but it isn't 100% accurate. Because of differences in cataloguing and indexing practices, the search will occasionally not find materials that Unitec does own. Think of Cite Linker as a convenient shortcut most of the time, but if it turns up with no results you should try searching the catalogue yourself. If you do not find what you are looking for, ask a librarian for help - Contact Us.
If the article you need is a very recent article from a journal, it's possible the article has not been loaded on the journal publisher's website, so Cite Linker cannot retrieve it. Unfortunately, you have to wait for the publisher to add it to their site. Another problem could be that our UResolver links are not functioning properly and need to be updated.
