One of the most complicated processes in Library research is finding articles on a topic.
NOTE: If you already know of an existing article, and you have a citation for it (or at least you know which journal it was published in), you don't need to go through as many steps. See our tutorial on "Navigating from a Citation to a Document".
If you DON'T know where the articles have been published, you need to follow a process:
Not all articles are available from every library; the library has to subscribe to it. We have systems in place to identify what is available and link you to it. If we don't have an article, you can ask us to order it for you - through Interlibrary Loan.
