Find a Specific Article Online

Whether you are looking for an article online or in print, it is important that you have as much of the citation information as possible, which may include:

  • Author
  • Article Title
  • Name of Journal
  • Volume
  • Issue
  • Date of Publication
  • Page Numbers

Search for Journal/Magazine/Newspaper Articles by Title

  1. Go to the library homepage,
  2. In the “Easy Search” search box on the homepage, enter the title of the article you need, and click “Search.”
  3. Search results will appear. Look on the left hand side of the page under “Articles,” and find the correct title (you can also check the author and journal name).
  4. Many articles will have a variety of links to full text. If you run into any problems accessing an article’s full text, or if the article does not appear in Easy Search, use Ask-a-Librarian to get help.

Search for Journal Articles by Author, Journal Name, and/or DOI

Browse Journals by Subject

You can also browse journals by a specific subject to see different potential resources.

  1. Go to: Library Catalog: Journal Search.
  2. In the search box at the top of the screen, type in your particular subject or research interest. For example, if I was writing a paper about air pollution and asthma, I could search “air pollution.”
  3. Search, and look at the different journals that appear.

If you can’t find the e-journal you need, please keep in mind that some journals are only available in print, and not online.
