From Citations to Articles

Don't Give Up!

Many articles cited in a library database or in resources like PubMed and Google Scholar are available through Ryan Library, even if you can't link to them directly. 

How to search:

1. Use the Journals Directory to search for the title of the journal in which the article was published; it will list any database with complete articles from that journal.

2. Use WorldCat, the library's catalog, to search for the title of the journal; it will indicate whether our library has hard copies of the journal.

3. Use PLNU's interlibrary loan service to place a request for articles not available through the library.
