3 Strategies to Finding a Known Article

You can quickly find a known journal article through the Main search box, Library Homepage

Main search box is a search engine that searches the some of the collections of UofC Libraries and Cultural resources for books, journal articles, manuscripts, works in the collection of the Nickle Arts Museum, archival material and locally digitized collections on your topic. 

Search the ARTICLE TITLE in quotes to quickly find the fulltext.

  1. Library Homepage
  2. Type: google scholar in the main search box
  3. In the search box type the title of the article in quotes:
  4. If the library has access to the fulltext, on the right hand side of the screen, you will see either a link to the PDF, or a FindIT@UofC link.  Clicking the link will bring up the fulltext.

If you have the complete citation (i.e. author, title of article, journal title, volume, pages, year) you can quickly find the article through our Journals listing rather than conducting a search in a database.

  1. Library Homepage
  2. Click on Journals
  3. Type journal title and click search

Always search by journal title not article title. You will then need to scan through the various table of contents to find the article you want.
