GSCI 398U: Cracking the Weather Code / (SPCS): Finding Articles

Suggested databases for getting started in IDENTIFYING articles

LOCATING articles through OneSearch

The library's OneSearch allows you to:

  • identify which journal titles are available at UR
  • identify which titles are in print or can be accessed as e-journals
  • access the e-journals through UR subscription links *
  • connect to the catalog to find "holdings" information for print titles (which volumes/years that UR owns)
  • find UR journals by subject  

               * Most UR subscriptions can be accessed directly from the database citation.  However, if there is no direct link from the citation to the journal article, go to the journal's website only through OneSearch.  Most subscriptions are also verified by IP identification - you must access UR e-journals from the campus network or through the proxy server.

Some publishers "embargo" their most recent issues so that you may only be able to electronically access articles published 1-2 years earlier.

ACCESSING articles in the Washington Post

Newspaper articles are often difficult to access through institutional subscriptions and -- unfortunately -- the Washington Post is no exception.

The law school library provides us with unlimited access to the Post but ...
You must either be on the UR campus or using the VPN to access articles in it. 

Use this link for access to the Post through the law school library.    Or the link below will also take you to the same page.

Information on installing and using the university's VPN can be found at this link.

Using Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If UR does not provide access to a journal and you need an article from it, use Interlibrary Loan to request it from another library.  Depending on how long it takes for the loaning library to fill the request, it may be only a few days before the article arrives.  It will be emailed to you as a .pdf file.
