Answer

Most online items in FindMore@NUSL are available as full-text online but a small minority are available only as a citation or abstract and have the status "Citation Online". 

Items with the status Citation Online includes but are not limited to items added from Abstracting & Indexing databases (databases that is mostly if not all records with citations & abstracts but may not contain the full-text in themselves) such as Web of Science, ERIC and MLA International Bibliography.

Items with such status also appear if you select "Add results beyond your library's collection".

The library may or may not have full-text access online or hardcopies of those items.

To check, clicking on the item will usually gets you to a page like below.

The above shows an item from Web of Science. Click on Get Journal Article to check if the article is available via 360link.

If you just want to see items with full text online and avoid items with status Citation Online, use the appropriate filter.

Extra Tip : There are a small number of items where the system is unable to determine if the item is full-text available or not and may display Citation Online or Check Availability.
