Look for hyperlinked text that says "HTML full-text" or "PDF full-text."

Or, there might be text or an image on the sides that say "Access Now" or "Find at Berklee." These are all proxy links that navigate you to the proper database where they're stored.

You might also see a "request via interlibrary loan" link, which indicates that we don't subscribe to that publication, but we can request a PDF copy be sent from another institution that does.

The Augmented Search, aka "EBSCO Discovery Service" is an aggregating platform that aims to combine links to *most* of our electronic resources (JSTOR is one database not included). But since many of these things are indexed or stored on different vendor databases (e.g. Gale, Proquest, etc.), the proxy links will show up differently depending on where it's truly stored.

When you click on any of these links, you will likely be prompted to login with your OnePass credentials if you're off campus. You can try setting up the Berklee VPN to emulate being on campus by routing through a Berklee IP, which will hopefully bypass some of these steps.
