Finding a Full-Text Journal Article

Some of our databases provide full-text articles (indicated by a PDF or HTML link after the citation).  Others only show you the titles of articles.  For these, click Article Linker to find out whether we own the journal in print and/or online.

If we do not have access to the article you need, you can request it (free of charge).  After logging into your InterLibrary Loan account, the system will automatically fill out the necessary information - you just need to hit Submit Request at the bottom of the page!

Public Opinion Stats

Gallup Poll: Great reputation as a nonpartisan poll/survey examiner for news "based on US and world polls, daily tracking and public opinion research." Use the resources pull down, and go to topics A-Z, or just enter your basic terms in the search box.

Pew Institute: A nonpartisan site that uses polls/surveys to examine current issues and trends affecting America and the world. Use the search box to look for a specific item, or the topic index (tab at the top) or search by general overview. Scroll down in each issue, as there are several survey questions shown for each.

Roper Center for Public Opinion: Hot Topics, statistics archived since the 1930's to present.  Entire site is useful, but the topics area narrows it down.  Very useful.
