How to Find an Article

Start on the library home page,

On the home page select the JOURNALS tab.

Type the title of the journal (not the article) you are looking for in the search box.

Remember: Do not use abbreviations.

Hit "Search" and you will be taken to the link for your journal title.

There may be more than one link to the journal in your results.  Look at the dates listed with each link to determine which link includes the year of your citation.  Click on the link.

You will be taken to the webpage of that journal.  If you are off campus you will be asked to log in to the network using your UHD network account.

You will see a table of contents or list of issues, click on the year you are interested in to see an expanded list of all issues in the year.

Once you locate the issue you are want click on the link for it.

You will see a list of articles that appear in that issue.  Scroll down through the results and browse until you find the article you are looking for. 

Once you locate the specific article you want to view, select one of the choices to view it by.  This will usually be HTML or PDF.
