Local or global alignment for gene fragments?

I got gene fragments of different lengths from cDNA libraries and
would like to perform pairwise alignments with selected matches which
I got from BLAST searches.
Should I use local or global alignment algorithms for these pairwise
alignments? The percentage of how much the gene fragments make up of
the complete genes (= BLAST search results) varies widely.
