Finding Articles Once You Have a Citation

In many cases, the database will provide a link to full text. But when it doesn't, or if the link doesn't work, what do you do?

Check the Journal Locator!

Enter the title of the journal (not the article information) in the search box. Look for Full Text Available listings that include the year you need & click on the journal title.

If there's no link to full text, look for Print copies at your library. Click on the journal title & look carefully at the holdings information to determine location.

Other Techniques

► Use the bibliography/reference list of the articles & books you find to track down additional sources.  Check relevant articles in Google Scholar to see if they've been cited by other authors. ► Make an appointment for a research consultation!
