The text and sometimes including the illustrations of a publication in electronic form. The term is used on the Journal Article Indexes and Databases by Subject pages to indicate which ones include the text, usually in html or pdf format, as well as the citations.
A journal or other article available in its entirety from a database or online source. A full text database is a database that has full text articles available for download (ie: Proquest). Other databases may have only citations or abstracts available.
Some databases contain links to the actual article online, either as an HTML web page or as an Adobe PDF document. This is convenient, because then you don't have to go to the stacks to find the journal. You shouldn't rely too heavily on full text databases, though; we still have many articles in printed journals that may never be in full text databases.
Some periodical indexes, such as ABI/Inform on Proquest Direct, provide the text of an article or document as well as an abstract. Some newspapers are also available in full text, e.g. The Age on CD-Rom. Full text does not include illustrations, nor diagrams, tables, equations or formulae. These are included in page-image formats, or in text and graphic formats. Inquire at any Information Desk. Back

Refers to the electronic representation of a document that includes the complete text of the original document (often a book or article). Depending on the file type, full text may or may not include images and tabular information. HTML files provide the complete text and may include graphs, tables, images from the original. The original formatting and page numeration is often lost in HTML versions. PDF files provide a visual replica, or scanned copy, of the material as it was originally published in print and therefore preserve all formatting, page numeration, and original images/charts/graphs/etc.
