Objectives: This papers examines the question; to what extent are resources cited in faculty publications available in full text outside of library holdings and subscriptions?
Methods: Citations were collected from journal articles, books (excluding textbooks), and book chapters for the years 2011-2016 from faculty in Genome, Cell & Developmental Biology, Optometry, and Speech & Hearing Sciences. An initial search for the cited works was done using library resources to establish a baseline of full text availability. Searches were then conducted on an off-campus network to determine the full text availability of the cited materials using Google, Twitter, and Sci-Hub without University network authentication. An analysis was then performed comparing library and non-library full text availability by overall availability across disciplines, availability by citing discipline, and citation age.
Results & Conclusion: Final results and conclusion will be presented during the talk
Keywords: citation, Sci-Hub, searching, collections
