Here is how to find a journal article when you already have a citation:
1. Go to the Library Catalog on Library Homepage
2. Click "Journal Titles" in the top banner. Type the title of the journal (not of the article).
3. In this case, click "See all versions" to find the one with the correct year range. Not all journals will have this options & might go straight to step 3.
Click "Available Online".
4. On the next page, find where it states "View Online". Click the hyperlink to go to the journal. Note that each hyperlink might have a different name. There might even be multiple options. The only thing to note is a year range in the hyperlink. Be sure it includes the year of the article you want.
5. The next page will look different for each interface. The screenshot below is simply one example. But regardless of interface, you will be able to select the year, volume, and issue number of publication to retrieve your article in full text. Sometimes you can search for the article title.
To search for articles based on a particular subject or topic, start with our databases.
From the Library website, select "Databases".
This page provides an alphabetical list of all our databases. We do not have a single search feature, so it is important to learn which databases are best for a particular topic. Since we do not have a search aggregator, it is possible that you will find the citation for an article in one database, but the full text for the article will be only available through a different database. Therefore, it's best not to limit to full text. In order to find a specific citation, see the box below.
The Research Process guide provides more information about choosing a database.
If you don't have a specific article in mind, you can search our databases. For help navigating APA PsycINFO or any of our EBSCOhost databases, use the links below, or schedule an appointment with Lauren Lacey, for one-on-one reference guidance.
NOTE: Due to copyright restrictions, we cannot request the same article from interlibrary loan multiple times, even for different patrons. Therefore, it is essential to check if Adler Library has the article in full text, and to follow the steps in the box to the left, if not. Otherwise, your students will not be able to complete assigned readings.
If you do need to request an article through ILLiad for your class, use the link below to learn more about using ILLiad.
When you search for a title, Annual Copyright License coverage is shown to the right of the search results:
This means the type of use selected is covered under our Annual Copyright License.
Clicking on View more uses will open a page with further explanation about those types of uses.
This means the type of use selected includes special terms from the copyright holder. To view the special terms associated with the publication, simply click the "TERMS" link.
