Tips for Finding Articles


To find an article when you have a citation (e.g. from a bibliography), you can search for the article title in Google Scholar, or search for the journal title in Journal Finder.

If we don't subscribe to the journal, you can request a scanned copy of the article through InterLibrary Loan.


To find articles on a particular topic, search by keyword in an article database. The library's Articles & Databases page lists them by subject and by title.
Your search results will list citations to articles or link right to the articles themselves online. Look for the "Full Text," "PDF" or “Find Full Text @G” links.
