3 Strategies to Finding a Known Article

You can quickly find a known journal article through the Main search box, Library Homepage

Main search box is a search engine that searches the some of the collections of UofC Libraries and Cultural resources for books, journal articles, manuscripts, works in the collection of the Nickle Arts Museum, archival material and locally digitized collections on your topic. 

Search the ARTICLE TITLE in quotes to quickly find the fulltext.

Go directly to

Ensure you have set up Google Scholar to access UofC full text.  If not, see the slides below for instructions

Type the title of the article, in quotes, to quickly find the article and, hopefully, the full text.

If you have the complete citation (i.e. author, title of article, journal title, volume, pages, year) you can quickly find the article through our Journals listing rather than conducting a search in a database.

  1. Library Homepage
  2. Choose RESEARCH
  4. Type the title of the journal (exclude "the" at the beginning) and click search

Always search by journal title not article title. You will then need to scan through the various table of contents to find the article you want.
