Finding Journal Articles

Getting the Full Text of Articles

If the full-text of an article is not available in the database you are searching, look for a "Locate it" button, which will link you to either the journal in which the article is published or to the article itself. 

If there is no button, use the Journal Titles tab in the red search box at the top of the main library web page to search for the title of the journal, or use the link below.  If we have a subscription, you will learn what years are available and in what database.  Some or all years of a journal may be available only in physical form in the periodicals collection on B2. 

For other journals we may have limited access, for example, not the most recent issues or not the earliest published issues. If we do not have access to the issue you need, use ILLiad.

 

Databases

Remember that if the full text of an article you want to read is not available in the database you are searching, you should  click the LOCATE IT button to see if it is available elsewhere. If you are using a citation from a print source, use Journal Titles to learn whether we have access and by what means (another database, the publisher's web site, or the print collection in Boatwright).
