The McDermott Minute

  • Need to find a specific journal article? Have an article citation but don't know where to start?

What's the quickest way to see if the Library owns the article? Use the Library Catalog. Type in the title of the journal (NOT the article title) into the Basic Search (limit to "Journal/Periodical Title"), and the system will tell you if the Library owns it (in electronic, paper, and/or microform formats). 
  • But what if the Library doesn't own the journal with the article that I need?
The quickest way to get something we do not own is to use the Library's Interlibrary Loan Service. Registration is fast and easy (and only required once). Afterward, you may place a request for the article. In two business days (often less) we will get an electronic copy of the article to you free of charge!
