There are 3-4 steps to finding an article on your research topic.
The library subscribes to many research databases that can be used for finding articles by subject, author, title, etc. Some databases cover a broad range of subjects. Others are specialized for narrower fields of study. An alphabetical list of Briggs Library databases is linked here Databases A to Z List.
If you are unsure which database would be best for your topic, start with the "Quick Search" tab on our library homepage, or choose a Research Guide for your subject area.
To locate the article in the library, you must have the complete citation from the journal index. A complete citation includes the title of the journal, date of publication, volume and issue numbers, page numbers, author and title of the article. You will also need the complete citation in order to request an item through interlibrary loan (if the item is not available at Briggs Library), and to list the article in your bibliography.
If you need help with citations or a bibliography, Ask a Librarian!
