How do I find an article?


If you already have a citation...

If you already have the full citation for the article you can go directly to FIND>Journals.  If we subscribe to the journal the article is from, you will be able to access the full text content either in the library or online.  Keep in mind when searching the journal locator that you need to use the journal title, NOT the article title.  Another thing to keep in mind is that journal locator will not make up for mispelled terms, so be sure you are accurate when entering the title of your journal.  If we do not have any holdings for the material you are looking for, you can request an inter-library loan, the service is free for faculty and students at Monmouth University. 

If you are looking for articles on a specific topic...

If you are looking for articles of a specific topic the best way to start your search is by locating the appropriate databases to search.  If your assignment requires you use a specific database you can locate it under the FIND>Articles>A to Z Databases List.  If you are unsure where to start, try using the Databases by Subject or Research Guides which will direct you to the most relevant databases for your searches.
