Journal Finder and ILL

LOCATING A JOURNAL ARTICLE - If you are looking for a known article (you already have the citation from a reference book, bibliography, another article, etc.) the following should help:

  • Search the Journal Finder.
    If the journal is in electronic format, just choose the link.  If the journal is in Print format, these journals are arranged alphabetically by title on the 2nd floor of the library. Older bound issues are in the back of the 2nd floor, and more current issues are shelved by the public computer area.
  • Do a search on the web.  Although most journal articles are not available for free, sometimes you may find what you are looking for.
  • If you can not locate the full text in print or electronic format, request an interlibrary loan.
