Articles & More Print Page


Spend some time brainstorming keywords and search terms. Use subject headings or descriptors to help generate search terms.

When you find a good article, look at its References or Works Cited list. That will often lead you to other useful sources.



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 Holy Cross Libraries' Catalog to find the journal in print or in electronic format by searching in the TITLE field for the name of the JOURNAL (not the article name): HC Catalog

2. If the catalog does not produce positive results, check the Electronic Journals A-Z List  by searching for the Journal name (not the article name) in the "Find" box.

3. If the Electronic Journals A-Z list does not produce positive results, order the article through InterLibrary Loan.

Depending on your research topic, you may want to look at some databases from other academic disciplines as well. Consider if researchers in other fields may have written about your topic. For example, if you were writing about unions during the Gilded Age, you may want to try an economics database or a sociology database. For economics, try EconLit. For sociology, try SocINDEX.

To search specific journals, check out the library's e-journals list (For example: The Journal of American History, The Journal of the Gilded Age & Progressive Era, or Labor History) or find out if we have the journal in print by searching for the journal title in the library catalog.
