Q. Why are some articles only in abstract form? Can we get the whole article or does it cost money?
To get the full text of an article for free (where there is only an abstract visible), fill out a request form to get the article loaned from another library that does subscribe to it.
Some articles are only accessible through the library databases in abstract form because Baker College does not pay for a subscription to the full text of every article.
When you're searching the databases for articles, if you want to see only the articles for which we subscribe to full text access, be sure to click the full text box.
