The OPAC will tell you whether the St. Augustine Libraries own or subscribe to a specific journal title, but it will not tell you which articles are in the journal. If you need to search for titles of individual articles or the full-text of articles, you will need to search for these in databases or check the websites of electronic journals.

Types of Databases
The main types of online databases are:
Depending on the database you are using, articles may be displayed in different formats:
- Index: Includes only the article’s citation information (e.g. author, title, date, volume, etc.). Neither a summary, nor the full-text of the article are available.
- Abstract: Includes the article’s citation information and a brief summary of the article's content. Abstracts do not include the full-text article.
- Full-text: Includes an electronic copy of the actual article. Depending on the database, the article may be available in HTML format, .pdf format (displays the article as it originally appeared in the magazine with graphics and pictures), or both.
