Q. How do I find a specific journal article?

Answer

When you have a citation for a specific journal article and need to find the full text, try searching the title of the article in the main search box on the Library's homepage .

 If that doesn’t bring up your article within the first ten or so entries, use this method:

  1. ​From the Library homepage at www.une.edu/library, select the Tab: Search > Journals.
     
  2. Under Journal Title Search, "Title begins with," enter the name of the journal you are looking for and click Search. Journal title abbreviations are usually recognized.
    Note: a common mistake is to enter the article title — make sure to use the journal title.

    Be sure to consider the dates available to make sure they include the issue you need.
     
  3. Click on an appropriate link to find your journal article in full text. There may be several ways to get to the article. If you are accessing electronic journals from off-campus, you will be prompted for your Nor’Easter Login. This is the username and password you use to log in to Blackboard, myUNE, U-Online, etc.
     
  4. At the ejournal site, look for a list of dates, or a link to “Past Issues” or “Archives” to navigate to the issue you need. Go to the year, volume and issue. Once in the issue, navigate to the article by page number. Some sites have a search function to search for the article by title or author.

For a short, step-by-step video tutorial of this process, see Finding A Specific Journal Article. For this tutorial and more, from the Library homepage click Get Help, then Tutorials.

If UNE Library Services does not provide access to the journal issue you need, use interlibrary loan to request a copy of the article. From the Library Services homepage click Borrow, then Interlibrary Loan: ILLiad. Log in to your account, or click First Time Users if you need to create an account, then complete and submit the Article Request form. You will get an email when the electronic article is available to pick up in your account.
