Why use articles for research?
1. Explore (web)
2. Background (library catalog: books)
3. Scholarly conversations (library databases: articles)
4. Support arguments (source citation)
5. Drafts & revisions (librarians & Writing Center)
2. Add: funding = 22,000+
3. Add: race = 1000+
4. LIMIT results to Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals
5. LIMIT results to the last ten years.
As you review bibliographies, reviews of literature, and reference lists, you will discover additional sources to possibly use. In this case, you have a citation, but you need the article itself. Does our library have it?
Quick, easy, and unsure
Search the title of the article. This can, however, present you with a mish mash of results. AND, if the article is in a print journal here in the library, WorldCat Discovery can't see it.
Slower, involved, but certain
Step one: search the journal title in WorldCat Discovery.
Step two: limit to journals in the facets on the left side of your results screen.
Step three: if we have the journal, it displays as SU Libraries Owns. Click into the record to see either electronic or print holdings.
