Using the Journal by Title Tab

The library's Article Quick Search searches millions of items. It’s built around natural language searching. Use the Advanced screen to create search terms within fields such as author, title, subject, keyword. 

If you know the name of a journal or the citation of an article, you can use the Journal by Title tab on the library home page. 

If you are looking for a specific journal, click Ebsco Full Text Finder. You can type in the journal name or browse by subject. If you know the citation, (e.g., title, author, journal name, volume, issue number, page numbers) OR you know the DOI, (Digital Object Identifier), use the Citation Finder tab and type in as much of the citation as you have. ( You may not need the entire thing.) Be sure to be exact entering the information.For instance if looking for the Journal of Staff Development, the word "The" must be left out. 

Google Scholar

An additional tool is Google Scholar, which is the true web scale search.  It works well for citation searches, and for certain kinds of subject searches. It’s good for author searches, especially when someone creates a Google Scholar page to feature their work.
