To find journal articles, you have 2 options:

  • Summon - is a discovery tool that searches almost all of the library's resources, simultaneoulsy. This search tool will access books, e-books, journal articles, videos, gov docs, newspapers, and more.
  • Databases by Subject  - many databases have built-in tools that will help refine your search

--> Also try searching in a few different places for both articles and books:

  • Google Scholar
  • Subject Guides (e.g. geography, global warming, political science, etc.)
  • Catalogue - search for books/ebooks
    • To find books, search the catalogue by Keyword
    • The catalogue is more up to date than Summon about the status of books and due dates, and it provides access to all of your library account functions, such as renewals, holds, etc.
    • Use subject headings to expand your search
