What does this mean?

No Full Text Available

If you click on a record within the library catalog and it shows "No full text available", this could mean a number of things:

  • Oops! There is an error in the system and the link to this item isn't working
  • This item was just added to the catalog and the link isn't ready yet
  • NOVA Libraries used to have access to this item, but it no longer does
