Searching for Articles

 

Use the library's research databases to find articles covering many academic disciplines using a variety of search methods. The library databases are listed by NameSubject, and Type, many of which provide the full-text of articles. For articles not available online, use the Find Text Finder link included with the citation to display where a copy of the article can be found. To locate articles on a topic, use the research databases. From the library's homepage, choose Research Databases and select to search by NAMESUBJECT, or TYPE.

How do I search for the citation of a known item in a journal?

Use the EJC article lookup tool to search for a specific article citation in the Electronic Journal Center.
