Using Databases to find Journal Articles
Many of the journals you will use in your research are available online through article databases. Databases gather those electronic journals together, usually by subject, and allow you to search many journals for articles on specific topics or by particular authors.
Getting full-text articles from journal databases:
Place a request wherever you see the blue
button or by logging into your IDS account.
- If Milne has it, we'll get it and deliver it to you (usually within 1-2 days).
- Otherwise, we'll try to get it from another library or vendor (usually within 3-7 days).
We'll notify you via email when your items arrive, or if we run into any difficulties.
