Browsing or searching journals is useful when you are already familiar with your topic, you've been told by your professor to look in a specific publication, or you are tracking down full-text access to a citation or abstract you found somewhere else. Searching in one journal is typically not an effective way to research a topic. 

To search for a journal by title, use the Find Information drop down menu on the Library's homepage:

  1. Click the Find Journals link
  2. A new window will open with a search box.
  3. Enter the title of the journal (ex: Civil War History) or a keyword (ex: civil war)
  4. Click Search
  5. Check the "Peer Reviewed Journals" box to limit your results on the left side of the screen. 
  6. Each search result will list out the various ways you can access the journal through our library. 
  7. For online access click the link
  8. For print or microfilm holdings, come to the library for additional assistance in accessing the title.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If you find a resource that you believe will be useful for your research and that you cannot access either because it is behind a paywall or the library does not have it, please submit a request for it via Interlibrary Loan. You can complete the ILL form here:

Articles are scanned and shared as PDFs. Typically you'll receive your article within two business days and then the PDF is yours to keep. Books arrive in at least 7 days and must be returned like any other library book. There is no charge for ILL requests and no limit to how many requests you can make.  

Need help? Just ask! Librarians can typically determine whether or not we have full-text access to a resource very quickly. If we don't have it, we'll help you complete the ILL form.
