Let's say you've found a citation for a relevant article in the bibliography of one of your sources. How do you find out if the library has that article?
Use these 3 steps:
Search the title of the journal in Journal Finder.
This will tell you whether the journal is available in print or online. (See an example of this)
If the journal is available, check to see if we have the right date for the article you want. (See this)
If the journal is not available, fill out this form to request it through Interlibrary Loan.
If the journal is available online in date range you need, follow the link to the appropriate database. (See this)
If the journal is available in print, click on the print collection link to see its catalog record. This will tell you whether to look for it on the 4th floor of Burling or in the Science Library. Journals are shelved alphabetically by title in both places.
Still can't find it? Ask a librarian for help--we'll be able to find it fast or get it requested through ILL.
