Where and how to search

Below are some resources on finding materials, physical and digital, in Cook Library. Always remember to evaluate any information you find, there is a ton of information out there and it's up to you to consider how valuable it is! A few questions you can ask yourself to assess information are:

  1. How old is this information?
  2. What evidence is the author using to support their statement?
  3. Who is the author?
  4. What is the purpose of this information?
  5. Are there any potential sources of bias?

Getting Full Text Articles

If you do not see a full text article link look for the example of the SFX Find it Button button in order to:

  • Access online full text (when available)
  • See if the journal is available in print (library catalog)
  • Request a pdf of the article if full text is not available online (Interlibrary Loan)

If you have the citation for the article you are trying to access, search the Journal List to check if the library subscribes to your specific article.

Finding Articles from a Citation

Use the Journal List to find a specific journal or article

  • In the journal list, search for the name of the journal
  • Date ranges show the time span the journal is available in a particular location (e.g., a specific database or on the shelf at the library)

The Journal List is also available in the Quick Tools menu on the library's homepage.
