1) Access the Find Journals List, which is also available from the menu on the library's home page.
2) Type in the title of the journal (not the article title).
3) Examine the results. The journal may be available online, in print, or on microfilm.
4) If you are looking for a specific article, check the year that the article was published and make sure that year is included in our subscription.
5) If the journal is online, click the link for the database that contains the journal. If you are looking for a specific article, you can then browse for the issue containing the article or, in many cases, search the journal for the article you need.
6) If the journal is not online, click the link to search the library catalog. This will tell you if the journal is available in print or microfilm in the library. You will need the call number to find it, so jot that down and come visit the Reference Desk if you need assistance.
7) If you are looking for a specific article and the journal is not available, you can request the article via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). 

Note: If you are a registered distance learner, then you can request articles available in print or microfilm in the library via ILL. Be sure to indicate in your ILL request that you are a registered distance learner.
