Answer

To find the full text of journal articles in databases when you have exact citations, type the title of the article, enclosed in quotation marks, in to the SearchBox on the library's homepage.

If you do not find the article you need, go back to the library's homepage under RESEARCH and click on FIND JOURNALS. Type the title of the JOURNAL (not the title of the article) and click on search.  Select a database that includes the year of publication you need, then search the specific database for your article.

If you still do not find it, please "Ask-A-Librarian" using the options on the right of this page.
