A quick way to locate an article’s full text when all you have is the citation is to perform a search using the Google Scholar tab from the Libraries' homepage at http://www.lib.miamioh.edu/.

Google Scholar may provide a link to the PDF (for articles that are freely available) or will provide the "Find It @MiamiOH" link if the Libraries subscribe to the journal. 

Another way to locate the article is to perform a search for the title of the journal the article is published in using the Libraries' Journal Titles tab. You can also find that on the Libraries homepage at http://www.lib.miamioh.edu/.


The results of your search display where you can find that journal. If it’s in print, you’ll see a call number and location. If we have electronic holdings, you’ll see a link to the journal online.


Click on the link. On most e-journal sites, you can perform a search by article title. You may also need to use the other citation information you have, such as year, volume, issue, or author, to assist in locating the full text.
