Looking for the full text ?

To find journal articles, you will primarily use the library's online databases. In the databases, you can conduct keyword, author, title, or subject searching.

  1. Always use the Find It  button for possible full text online. Examine any holdings statements to see if we have the volume and issue that the article appears in.
  2. If no full-text available online, then use the Find It button to connect to the library's online catalog to see if the library has the journal in print format, so you can locate the article in the library.
  3. If the library doesn't have the article online OR in print, use Interlibrary Loan to get it from another library.

When you just have a citation:

  1. Copy and paste the name of the article title into the library's Discovery database.
  2. Follow the steps above to determine if the library has the article you need.


Many authors, especially federal government employees, post versions of their articles online. So you may be able to find what you need through a Google or Google Scholar search.

Research Databases

This database includes "peer-reviewed full text for STEm research, as well as for the social sciences and humanities. Scholarly content covers a broad range of important areas of academic study, including anthropology, engineering, law, sciences and more."
