Most databases provide a way to limit your results to only those records that provide access to the full-text of the document. These full-text limiters can be very useful especially when you only need one or two resources.
However, you must remember that if you use this option you will be eliminating those items that could be found in other Rice Library databases or in print format. This can be especially troublesome when you need a large number of sources.
To avoid these problems, if possible, start your research early in case you need to request articles through Interlibrary Loan.
