When you are off-campus, always start from the library homepage

This is to guarantee that you will be asked to authenticate with your UCID and avoid the PAYWALL

There are four ways to find articles from the library homepage:

KNOWN ARTICLE:  For an article you already know about use SEARCH EVERYTHING from the library homepage (i.e. paste in the title or title words and author's last name)

BY KEYWORD:  To find articles on a subject use SEARCH EVERYTHING and type in subject keywords or choose a subject specific database to narrow the search pool.  (This searches almost all of the library databases at once.)

WITHIN A SPECIFIC JOURNAL:  Use the Journals+ tab  to search for a specific periodical title (i.e. Harvard Business Review) to locate the journal on the library website.  Choose the database based on dates available.  Then browse by date or issue, or search within the title.

BY SUBJECT:  Choose the databases tab and select a database related to the subject you want to search.  Use the drop-down for our frequently used databases, use the A-Z link if you know which database you want, or use "databases by subject" to find databases that cover your subject.  Hard to choose?  Contact a librarian.
