Finding Articles

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.  Note the year of the journal article and make sure we own the year you need!

If we don't own the journal article you need, you may order through InterLibrary Loan (See tab).

For help in distinguishing scholarly journals from popular journals, see the Scholarly v. Popular page from our Research Process Guide.

Request books or articles from other libraries

If we don't have access to an article or book:

You can request an electronic copy of it (It's FREE!) from another library using Interlibrary Loan. This can usually take 1-2 days for articles or up to 1-2 weeks for books.
