Direct Linking from Art Full Text to Library Catalogue

It is now possible to check whether the Library stocks a particular journal directly from inside the Art Full Text database.
Art Full Text indexes about 500 international art and design journals, and can be used to search for journal articles on particular artists, designers and architects, or on particular subjects. Access to Art Full Text is via your Athens account. If you have not yet requested your account, see the sidebar of this blog for details on how to do so.
Now for the first time you can check our journal holdings direct from Art Full Text. When you find a journal article you are interested in, click on the full-text PDF link to retrieve it on screen. If the full-text option is not provided, you can click 'Check in GSA Library' to see if we stock it in print form, which you can photocopy the next time you're in the Library. Previously you had to conduct a separate search of the Library Catalogue to retrieve this information.
