The library provides Research Guides by subject area.

  • Select the area of science that you are working with; i.e. biology.
  • Click the Articles tab
  • Click on Academic Search Premier.
    • On the search screen, under Limit your results, click on Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals.
    • Type in your search terms in the Find boxes.

While many articles found on databases like Academic Search Premier are available in full text, many are not. Articles not in full text in one database may be in full text on another database. Or the library may subscribe to the journal.

To find out if an article you want is available in another database or in our library, follow these steps:

  1. Bring up a new window with the library's home page.
  2. Click on Journals Titles A-Z.
  3. Type in the name of the journal you want.

If there is a link to "in print at the library," click to see the library catalog record for the title. If we are still subscribing to the journal, the most recent issues and the older bound issues are shelved alphabetically by title on the Lower Level, Right side.

Usually there are also links to online databases. Be sure to check the years of coverage.

  • Click on the Article link (if present) to go straight to the article in the database
  • Click on the Journal link (if Article is not an option)
    • then the year of the issue you need
    • then select the issue.
  • Or type the key words of the title and search.

If there is no link to the catalog or another database, you will need to request the article through interlibrary loan.
