Additional Database

Journals

Journals consist of articles written by scholars and researchers, reporting in detail on their original research, and "peer reviewed" by other experts before they’re published.  Most are published by professional or academic organizations, for specialists in that field.

Journals are published regularly, like magazines, but most magazine articles provide more basic information, and are written for the average person.

Full-text Articles

Access to full-text articles will be indicated by html and PDF icons within each bibliographic citation when you use the library databases.

When you see by the bibliographic citation, you may "Get the full-text" from another library database.  If you find that the full-text article is not available, then you will see the statement, "Request through interlibrary loan."  Click on it and login to the Interlibrary Loan service.

If you have problems accessing full-text articles or requesting an interlibrary loan, see a Reference Librarian.
