Full text means you'll be able to read the entire article right now, online.

In Library Search, there will be a link to Full Text Available under the information about the article.

Click that, and you'll get one or more options for databases that have the article for you to read. Choose one, and you should be set.

In other databases, if there isn't an obvious link to full text, look for the Find It link:

Click that, and you'll get options for accessing the article through databases or the library's collection. If the library doesn't have the article, sign in and click Request a Copy under Get It to request the article from another library through Interlibrary Loan.
