Articles and Journals

Journal articles provide in-depth information about very specialized topics. Use these resources to find an article for which you already have a citation or to find articles about any given topic.

Catalog
When you have a citation for a journal article, use a title search in the library catalog to see if the libraries have print copies of that journal. For journals with generic names, use Advanced Search and limit the format to Periodicals. Look at the summary at the bottom of the journal's catalog entry to see which issues are held by the libraries.

eJournals Locator
When you have a citation for a journal article, use the eJournal Locator to see if the libraries provide online access to that journal. Search for the journal name in the Find field. The entry for that journal will list which databases provide full-text for which years of that journal.

Databases
To find articles on a given topic, use the database locator to find an appropriate database. You can either browse by broad topic or search by database name.
