Q. How do I find a specific journal article?

I found the citation for an article and I need to find out if the library has a copy.


The journal citation often has all of the information you will need to find the article in the OneSearch database. 

Citation Format

Last, F. M. (Year Published). Article title. Journal Name, Volume(Issue), pp. Page(s). URL


Hiltz, S., & Turoff, M. (2005). Education goes digital: The evolution of online learning and the revolution in higher education. Communications of the ACM, 48(10), 59-64.

When in OneSearch you will see the Fetch Item link at the top of the page. This will lead you to the Citation Linker. You can enter the Journal Name, Year, Volume, Issue, and First Page into the Citation Linker and be taken to the library holdings for that journal. If we don't own the article you will be prompted (once you sign in) to submit a request via the library Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.
