Find a Journal Article When You Have A Citation

If you have a citation for a journal article that you want to find, watch the video below to help you out.  In brief, here are the steps.

  1. Read the citation. If it's a journal article (look for cues like a volume and/or issue number), open the Journals A-Z search from the library homepage (linked under the video below).
  2. Locate the journal by searching the journal title (not the article title) in the search.
  3. A number of databases might be listed under the title of the search. Select one that has the coverage for the issue you need.
  4. Browse to the correct year, volume, issue number. Look for the article.
  5. If you need help, use the library chat. Copy and paste the citation you are looking for into the chat and ask the librarian to help you find out if we have it or not.
