THE most frequent question we librarians get is – where can I get my article online? The answer can be quite complicated, but in a nutshell, here is how you can find your article.

  • From the Libraries Home Page, click on the link (right side of page): Search a citation.
  • Then type in your journal title in gray box on the next screen.
  • Our amazing “Find It” software will look for any and all online access we have to that journal.
  • Now it’s just a matter of matching up the year and volume of your citation to the online coverage of our many e-journal providers.

Simple enough, but what if the journal has NO online coverage? Well, look at the screen again, to see if found a record in the catalog. If so, you’ll have a call number to locate your article in hard copy (the old-fashioned print volumes).

Okay, what if finds nothing? Not to worry. You can order a copy from Interlibrary Services. Click on the link on the screen for MSE Borrowers, under “Request a copy from Inter-Library Loan.”

Problems? Ask a librarian.  We’re used to finding articles!
