Since you have the citation for the article, it should include its title, the name of the journal in which it appears, the publication date, the volume and/or issue numbers, and possibly even its page numbers. You may be able to use this information to find your article in one of our 250+ other databases. First, go to the library catalog ( Next click advanced search. Then scroll down and choose Journal/Magazine for format and type the title of the JOURNAL in the search box. From the search results, select a link from one of the databases which contains the online journal. From the journal's title page, select the publication date, then the volume/issue, and then find the title of the article you require.

If you are unable to find full text for the article, and would like for us to request the article for you, fill out our Request an Article form online or in person at the library.

If the information you need is not available online or via our information delivery services, please Ask a Librarian about visiting one of our partner libraries.
