Research Databases

I have the citation. How do I find the journal article?

  1. Look for the journal title in the Journal Locator - an alphabetical list of our electronic and print journal holdings.
  2. If your journal is listed, check that the issue you need is available. Journals that are available electronically have the dates of coverage listed next to the database link(s). For journals available in print or on microfilm, you will see a link to the library catalog labeled "Philip Weltner Library Print/Microfilm Holdings." This will tell you what issues we have in the library.
