Finding Articles

How do I find articles in journals or magazines or newspapers?
Search the library's article databases. Some of the databases are limited to particular subjects; some databases include many subjects. Choose a database based on your topic. Please ask a librarian for advice.

I found an article in a library database but I can't find its text?
Articles aren't always available online; sometimes databases only provide descriptions of articles. If the "full-text" of the article is not available online, you may request a copy by any means: in person, telephone, e-mail, or you may submit your requests using a paper form you'll find in the library. You also may submit requests online. Look for the "Where can I get this link" in the database; it will lead you to a form you can use to request the article. Expect to wait about a week for the article to arrive in the library.
