If you are still using the database, look for a "Search For Article" button on the article's page. This will check UC Library's other online collections for your article.

To find a journal article when you are not using a database, or if your database does not allow "Search For Article":

1) Obtain the article's citation (reference). You must find the journal article title, title of the journal that it was published in, journal volume number, issue number, and page numbers.

2) In the Library Catalogue, choose a Title Search and search for the journal title (not the name of the article), for e.g. Journal of Social Issues.
Tip: To find only physical copies, go to the Advanced Search function, selecting 'Journal-Print' for 'Material Type'.

3) See if the journal appears in your results. Click on the journal title to see more details. Check if we hold the year the journal article was published. If your journal is available online for the period you need, click on the link and browse to the particular volume (year) and issue.

4) If the journal is available in print, note the call number and locate the journal.
Browse for the year/volume, then the issue number.
If you don't have the correct page number for the article, look for it in the contents page for your issue.

5) If the journal is not available from UC Library, you may place a request through Document Delivery
