When to Use Journal Articles

Journal articles are excellent resources when you need very recent information, and when you are looking for full-text resources that you can read on your computer or mobile device.

Do we own it?

Do you have a citation and want to see if we have the article?  Search for journal titles to see if we have the journal in full-text online or in print here in the library.

Search Google Scholar

Library Databases

Use the “Database Directory (A-Z)” list if you know which database you want to use, and use the "All Subjects" drop-down menu to help you decide on a database if you’re not sure. You can narrow down your choices using its ten categories. Click on the database name on either list to find out the contents of the database and what years it covers.
