A Specific Article or Journal

To find a specific article, look to see if we have the journal it was published in. Click on the Find a Journal link on the library's homepage to search for the title of a journal. Be careful to use the journal title, not the article title.

Find a journal link on the library's homepage

This will tell you whether we have the journal, and if so, where. It includes both electronic and paper journals.

If this does not work, search Google for the article title. Sometimes, you can find a free copy of the article by searching it on Google.

A Specific Database

Click on the Databases A-Z link on the library's webpage.

Link to get a list of databases
