How Do I?

Find Articles

Find Articles by Topic

Start at the scoUT search box page on the library home page. If you would like help on how to search using scoUT please see the following topic Use scoUT to Search. If you have a very general topic, enter keywords that you think are the most relevant to your search. When your results are displayed, you can then limit and refine your results based on journal articles, peer reviewed, newspapers and those that are available online. The articles that are available online have yellow "online" tags attached to the record. From the article listing, select the article title you would like and you should be directly linked to your article selection.

You can also search using the Database tab on the scoUT search box. If you are unsure of which database to use, try an interdisciplinary database like Academic Search Complete, or follow the "Databases by Subject" link. The "About" buttons after each Database title contain information about each database that will help you choose.

Find a Specific Article
Do a journal title search in the Library Catalog to see if we have the issue/volume you need, or try the citation look-up tool to see if the article is part of our online collection.
