Quick Find is a search tool that will help you locate research materials in all four campus libraries. You can use this tool to search for peer-reviewed journal articles (although you can search for many other types of materials as well, by changing the Resource Type filters). You can access Quick Find from the Library home page.
To search for journal articles in Quick Find:
When you find an item you would like to view, select Full text available, then select the database link (or one of the database links; sometimes an article is available in more than one database). Once you are brought to the article's item record, locate the link to the PDF file to view it.
Please note that if you are working off campus, most of the library's online resources require that you log in with your Novell username and password in order to access them.
For detailed information and video tutorials on searching using Quick Find, please see Archer Library's Quick Find LibGuide.
Full text of backfiles of more than 1100 journals in the humanities, social sciences, sciences and education. Coverage is from volume 1 on, excluding latest 3-5 years.
If you are unable to find a book or article through the library's catalogue or databases, you can make an interlibrary loan (ILL) request to obtain this material from another library.
To place an interlibrary loan request:
If you have any questions about this process, just ask for help at Campion Library, or you can check out the library's FAQ page on ILL. Please note that ILL can take days, or even weeks to complete (since the material is coming from another library), so it's a good idea to plan ahead and start your research early.
