Q. How do I find a specific journal article?
If you are looking for a specific article, there are a couple of ways to find it:
1) You can search for the journal that the article appears in. Click on the JOURNAL TITLES link on the left hand side of the library's homepage. Once there, enter the name of the journal in the search bar. If the library has access to the journal, you will see a list of databases that have the journal and for what years. Pay close attention to the date ranges, because the library may not have access to every issue.
2) Use Library Quick Search on the library homepage. Type in the title of the article. In some cases, you may also need to add the last name of the author. To see if we have a journal in print format, or on microfilm, search Print Catalog, using the journal title limiter.
Follow the link below for our Journal Locator.
3) Use Google Scholar. Click the GOOGLE SCHOLAR link on the left hand side of the library's homepage. If you are on campus, click the link for on-campus users and type the title of the article in the search box. If you are off campus, follow the instructions listed on the page and then proceed to search for the article. The search results will indicate if it is accessible through UTSA, through another university, or free access.
