How Can I Find the Full Article?

Use these 3 options to locate a complete article when all you have is a citation:

  1. Link out to PLNU's Journals Directory from your list of search results in one of our databases.

  2. Go straight to the Journals Directory to see if articles from the journal you need are included in any of our 80+ databases.

  3. Use your favorite search engine to explore the open web by looking for the article title (use quotation marks around the title to improve your results)

Can't seem to track it down?

Use PLNU's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request service. We'll find another library that has what you need, and we'll send the article right to you!
