How Do I Find an Article if It Is Not Available Electronically?
You will not be able to find the full-text of every article online. If you find an article with only an abstract (summary) or a citation (reference), write down all of the pertinent information:
- Periodical Title (Journal, magazine, or newspaper) (sometimes refered to as the SOURCE)
- Publication date
- Volume and/or issue number
- Title of the article
- Page number(s)
Also look for a HTTP link at the bottom of the "Full Details" page to see if the article might be available electronically.
