Finding Scholarly Articles

Finding a Copy of a Periodical Article

Locating the full text of the article in electronic form:

If there is no PDF or HTML full text with the citation for an article in a database, click on Linked Full Text or Full Text through LinkSource. If the full text of the article is available in another database, there will usually be a link to that database where the article can be found by linking to the appropriate volume and issue number, or by searching for the article by its specific title. In some databases, the article will appear without additional searching.


If the article is not available, return to the home page of the library and click on Journals. Enter the journal title in the search box, and click on Exact Match. You can then determine if an online or print copy of the article is available. Oneonta Local links to information about locally held items. On the record for the journal title, click Is it here? The record will list the years and volumes of the journal held in Milne Library. The record will also indicate whether the issue is in print or microfilm.
