If you have the citation of an article and want to find a copy of it, follow these steps. Each journal will look a little different, but the basic steps will be the same.
For example, let's find this article:
1. Go to the library website's journals list. You can access this from the homepage under Find --> Journals, Magazines & Newspapers.
2.Then enter the title of the journal and click search. In this case, the title is Journal of Learning Sciences.
3. If the library has the journal, pay close attention to the dates each option provides access to. In this case, we're looking for an article from 2014, so the first link won't work for us. We need to choose an option that includes 2014.
4. Next, you'll be taken to a website where you can access the journal.
Search the title of the article in the top search box: "Lessons that last: Former youth organizers’ reflections on what and how they learned."
Make sure you are searching "This Journal" in the drop-down menu, since many vendors provide access to several journals.
If you have trouble, try entering fewer words from the article title, or search the author's name.
5. Click on the article title.
You can read it online or download the PDF.
6. If you want to read more from this journal, you can browse by specific issue or search across multiple issues by keyword.
