Articles

Try these methods to find a specific article or articles on a subject or topic.

Searching for articles

Use Library Articles Search to look for scholarly articles, book chapters, newspaper articles, and more. You can narrow your search by publication date, format, language, and other filters when viewing your search results.

If you have the citation for a specific item, you can enter it into Citation Linker to check for access.

See our guide, Tips for Using Library Search, for strategies on how to best search, view, and refine your results.

Search by subject or discipline 

You may want to search within a database or journal focused on your area of research for articles. To find one:

  • Use Library Database Search to browse by subject area or title.
  • Use Library Online Journals Search to view publications by discipline, or alphabetically. You’ll see not only journals, but also newspapers, magazines, and similar publications to which the library subscribes.
  • Use Library Catalog Search to find a specific periodical or newspaper and view its print and online availability.
We advocate for accessible electronic resources. If you encounter an issue with any electronic resources accessed through the library, let us know at Ask a Librarian. We’ll attempt to address the issue with the vendor.
