Fast Full Text: Overview

Gain access to Penn resources easily through these online tools.

Using Penn Proxy

Nearly all of Penn Libraries' online resources are available off-campus. Links on library webpages are 'proxied' so that off-campus users are recognized as Penn subscribers.

The tools on tabs in this guide give fast access to online resources without going through the library webpages

Using PennText

In Penn Libraries' databases,  look for the PennText link or button. Click the PennText link to open a page with options for obtaining the full-text of the resource. 

Viewing the Full Text

Once you find an article available through Penn Libraries, you may be asked to log in with your PennKey and password, to verify your account. Once you are authorized, you will be able to access the full text.

For example, this article is available through Wiley Online Library. To get the full text, click the link that says "Get PDF" (or "Download PDF" or "View PDF" depending on the provider).
