Q. How do I find a journal article?

Answer

To find a specific article, you should NOT use our Online Catalog. It searches only at the journal title level, not at the article level. To search at the article level, you should go to the library’s main page and click on Electronic Research Databases (the second bulleted item). Once you get to the list of our databases, choose the one that is best suited for your search. For example, if you need an article on stress for a Nursing class, you would use CINAHL, the nursing database, while if you needed an article on stress for Psychology class, you would choose PsycInfo. If you need a general article or a current event article, use Academic Search Premier. If you do not know which database to use, consult a library staffer. Searching in the wrong database is like looking for a nonexistent black cat in the dark.
