The full article may be available in one of our other research databases, so take the following steps:
1. Journal Finder.
Use the Library’s “Find a Journal” to discover if the journal you need is available in full in one of our other research databases.
2. Google Scholar.
If the year/issue of the journal you need can’t be found in Journal Finder, you can go to Google Scholar and search for the specific article.
3. Interlibrary Loan.
If neither of the two above steps gets you to the full article, request the Library to get the article for you through Interlibrary Loan. Please note:
In Find a Journal, type the journal's name in the top search box (or browse title instead).
For example, a search for Rolling Stone magazine in Journal Finder produced these results:
Click on the hyperlinked title of the journal to get the following page.
1. If the journal is available online, the search results will display a list of the databases that contain the journal's articles.
Each database link will take you into the database to get the article you need.
In the example above, Rolling Stone is available in these three (3) online databases:
Proquest Research Library
Academic Search Premier in Ebscohost
MasterFILE Premier in Ebscohost.
2. Note the dates for which we have issues of the journal!
Proquest Research Library issues are available from 1992 to the present
Academic Search Premier has issues of Rolling Stone from 1990 to the present
3) Click the link to one of the databases that has the date range of the magazine you need
b. If the journal is in print or microfilm in the library, there will be a link to the item labeled "Check Holdings at Dakota State University".
Note the dates for which we have issues of the journal!
c. If zero (0) results are returned from a search of Journal Finder, the Mundt Library does not have the magazine or journal you searched.
Here, you will need to request the article you need through Interlibrary Loan.
