Find an Article
with a Citation
A step-by-step guide
Step 1 From the library homepage, choose
Periodicals under the Research menu
Step 2 Click on CitationLinker. Remember,
this will search for articles, not books.
Step 3 Fill in as much information as you can,
then click GO.
Step 4 Find the correct journal title.
Sometimes it’s pretty far down the list!
Step 5 Compare the “available from” dates,
and select a database.
Step 6 Usually, you’ll be taken directly to the full text
of the article. If not, click on the PDF or HTML
link, search for the title within the journal, or
click through to the correct volume and issue.
Step 7 Sometimes we don’t have access to
the full text, even using Find it!.
Step 8 Not to worry! Click on More Options
