Using E-journals and E-books: How to use Link Navigator (linking to full text)

About Link Navigator (linking to full text)

When you access full texts by following links from KOSMOS, Keio University Electronic Journals, or database search results, etc., it will take you via the Link Navigator screen as shown below. The Link Navigator screen lists the places you can access the full text (or the print copy) including links to e-journals to which Keio University has an agreement with and confirmation of print copies in collections.

Explanation of the Link Navigator screen​ (via database)

*When you cannot connect properly (when accessing the full text from database search​

Because Link Navigator automatically creates a (URL) link and sends you to the text, on some occasions the connection will not work. If you follow the link and still cannot connect to the intended site, please try the following:

  1. Delete the volume number, page number, etc.
    When you access a text from a database search result, the publication year, issue number and page number are automatically entered. By deleting these, it will send you to the top page of the periodical where the paper, etc. is published. 
  2. Retry search on the Keio University Electronic Journals page
    If the method above (in 1.) does not work, please try a new search in the Keio University Electronic Journals page entering the journal title in which that paper etc. is published.
