Beginning an Article Search
There are many ways to begin when searching for scholarly articles. The library has a variety of scholarly journals representing many disciplines and subjects that are in print and available in your library building.
- Electronic Journals: Databases such as Academic Search Complete and JSTOR are good starting points and contain articles from journals representing a variety of disciplines and subjects.
- Print Journals: Print journals in the library are located on the lower and upper floors in the periodical sections. The upper (3rd) floor periodicals collection consists of journals relating to Education, Music and Art, in addition to popular magazines. The lower (1st) floor periodicals collection consists of journals relating to every other subject, including Religion, Philosophy, History, Science, Health, and more. At the very back on the lower (1st) floor of the library, you will find the library's back-issues of print periodicals in the Bound Periodicals section, along with back-issued Newspapers.
- Still can't find the article/journal you're searching for? Consult your Reference and Interlibrary Loan Librarian, Dr. Arthur Robinson. He can assist you in locating articles using our databases, or can request the article from another library if needed.
