Sister Diana @uc_pres   We must remember that we are not defined by our past, God treasures us and provides hope for the future. We must seek out God's presence.

Find a Journal Article

Choose Indexes/Databases from the library homepage. You will see a list of article indexes and other databases. Click on the one you want. If you are not sure which one to choose, you may click on Indexes/Databases by Subject to help you select.

Academic Search Complete is a general database with full text articles, so it is a good place to start. Enter keywords in the first box to search for articles about your topic.

You may limit your search in several ways depending on the database. We recommend against selecting "full text only" since that will eliminate articles linked to in other databases.

When you find an article that seems useful, click the "find it" button to see if the library has the article. If we do not have it, you may request it through Article Express.

If you get no hits or too few:

  1. Try different keywords.
  2. Try using fewer keywords.
  3. Try a different database.

If you know the title of the journal you want you can enter it into our Journal Finder.

Finding journal articles can be difficult!!
