Accessing Journal Articles

Generally, databases will have links to the full text of the article. If there is no full text link listed, click the link "Full Text Finder" to search e-journals.

If the article is not available online, check the library catalog to see if we have a print copy. If so, visit the library or make a Scan and Deliver request through your Interlibrary Loan account. You'll get an email once the article is scanned and available from your account.

If we don't have the article you need, place an Interlibrary Loan request. This service is free, but first time users will need to register.

Cited Reference Searching

Find out who has cited specific articles, books, or particular authors. Google Scholar and Web of Science have cited reference searching. If you use the library's link for Google Scholar (it includes our proxy), you'll be able to find cited references from both.

Requesting Books

For books we have in our collection, use the request link in the catalog to have books brought to a library service desk nearest you, including those from the Library Annex.

If we don't own the book you need, we have services available to get it for you.
