Finding Articles

Use this guide to help you find:

Journal Articles on a topic:

  • Use the Databases  tab to find information about databases that contain articles 


An article if you already have an a citation:



What is a citation?

A citation [or bibliographic citation] is the information that describes an article or book.

For an article, that information will include the article title, article author (or authors), name of the journal that contains the article, the journal volume, issue and date.

Here are 3 examples:

  • Samoan Moral Discourse and the Loto, Jeannette Marie Mageo, American Anthropologist, New Series, Vol. 93, No. 2 (Jun., 1991), pp. 405-420  
  • Ladd, Carll (11/01/1999). "A systematic analysis of secondary DNA transfer". Journal of forensic sciences (0022-1198), 44 (6), p. 1270.
  • "Human impact on global warming confirmed." The Nation's Health 31.2 (2001): 6. Academic OneFile. Web. 7 July 2010.

 If you have an article citation, use the journals link to see if we have access to the journal containing that article

If we don't have access, request an interlibrary loan so we can get you the article from another library
