One of the themes of this paper is the clamour for full text. As of today, the three basic models of full text that seemed to be lining up a year ago have become a reality. These are publisher‐supplied full text; third‐party, or aggregator‐supplied full text; and distributed, “linked” full text ‐ in which a bibliographic database provider links to (usually) publisher‐supplied full text. This paper looks at each model in detail, with particular emphasis on the challenges they face.
