Finding Journal Articles
Finding Full Text Versions of Articles
When searching article indexing databases, sometimes the full text of the article you need is not provided to you by the database. Or you have identified a citation in a bibliography or footnote and need to find the full text. There are two ways of finding the full text of any article that you need.
- Check Find Journals to see if Tutt Library subscribes to an electronic version of your journal or magazine or if we own databases which may have your article in full text. Find Journals a.k.a Tutt Link is available next to the citations in most of our databases. Find Journals will also show if the print version is available.
- Request an ILLiad/Interlibrary Loan of your article directly from your database (use button or hotlink) or log into ILLiad and fill out an Interlibrary Loan Request Form. (Articles can come in as few as 24-48 hours.) You must be registered with ILLiad for either method to work – see First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan.
Finding Print Journal Articles
Not every journal is online! Be prepared to deal with tangible resources. All periodicals in Tutt Library are on the second floor; older volumes are organized around the outside wall, while newer issues are in the current section next to the videotapes.
When looking for a print article, be sure you have the whole citation in hand — title of the journal; year, volume, issue number and pages of the article. Check in Tiger or Find Journals to see what years are covered as it is common for academic libraries to lack entire runs of journals. You can’t check out periodicals, but you can use the photocopiers on the 1st and 2nd floor.
Occasionally, you will have to retrieve articles stored on microform. This is an old-school technology involving the transfer of journal/newspaper page images onto plastic film in reels or small sheets. Please contact library staff for assistance in finding and loading microform.
