How do I find journal articles?
Recommended: Education Research Complete; ERIC@ Scholarsportal
Limit to scholarly (peer reviewed) journals
Look for descriptors (or subject headings) for more focused results
Not all articles are available online in full text format
“ Get it” button looks for the full text throughout all of the Library’s databases
Have you found a fantastic article (either from a database search or your reading list)?
Use the reference list of that article (esp. if it is a recent article) to find additional relevant articles
Search for TITLE (of book)
OR JOURNAL TITLE
What if Brock doesn’t have it?
Use RACER (Interlibrary Loan) to request it
Borrow from another University library
Then export articles from database to Refworks
Share references with colleagues
