How to Find Scholarly Journals & Articles

Using Journal Finder or ILL to Obtain Articles

If you know the title of the article or journal you are looking for, search for it with the Journal Finder.

Sometimes the library does not carry the journal you want or does not have access to the year in which the article appears
In this case, submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.

You might come across a citation of an article that you want to find.

To locate the article with the journal finder, determine the Journal Title, Year, Volume, and Issue Number
