SQL: How to Find Journals or Articles Using Databases and Catalogs?



The following are things to remember when looking up journals or journal articles when using databases and catalogs:

  •  The journals and books in the library are shown in the catalog, but it doesn't describe the journal's articles or the book's chapters. To find journal's articles you have to use databases. 
  • When looking up journals you are shown articles that may be of interest by the database. 
  • Then, you need to see if the library subscribes to the journal, by searching the name of the journal in the library catalog. The location, or call number of the journal, and the issues of it held are shown in the catalog. If the library holds the journal, use the information found in its citation (eg. date and pages, volume and issue numbers) to find the article within the database.  Use the "Request a photocopy" link" in the catalog to get a copy of the article sent to you electronically, if you are a Distance Education student.
  • Instead of the title of the article, look up the journal's name when you are looking through the library for the article.
    • NOTE: All the journals found in a database are not necessarily held in the library
