Finding Journal Articles at Holy Cross
Do you have an article citation, but need to find the full-text article? Three Steps to Finding the Full Text Article:
1. Check the Electronic Journals A-Z List by searching for the name of the Journal name (not the article title) in the "Find" box. If the journal comes up in your results, look at the years of coverage to make sure that the library has the year you are looking for. If yes, click on the link for the journal and then scroll to the volume you need or search within the journal for the article.
2. If you aren't able to find the journal in the Electronic Journal list, check the Catalog to find the journal in print by searching for the name of the journal (not the article title). If the journal comes up in your results, look at the years of coverage to make sure that the library has the year you are looking for. If yes, copy down the call number so that you'll be able to locate the journal in the stacks.
3. If you can't get the article in print or online, order the article through InterLibrary Loan.
