Find Articles

Your guide to finding articles for your research.

What if I already know which database I want?

  • Start with Databases A-Z.
  • If you know the name of the database you want to use, navigate to it by selecting the it from the alphabetical bar.
  • If you want to sort by subject, select your desired subject from the "All Subjects" dropdown menu.
  • If you want to sort by the type of resource or information you are seeking, select a type from the "All Database Types" dropdown menu.

What if I want some subject-specific guidance?

  • Start with a subject-specific Research Guide and select one of the highlighted databases.

  • Use the guide to find "Best Bets," highlighted resources, and citation help that is specific to your discipline.

Find A Specific Article

Need to find a specific article that you have a citation, title, or author for?

1: Know the Journal Title? Search E-Journals

Virtually all journals that MSMU has full-text access to online are indexed in our E-Journal search. Simply type in the title, hit search, and you will find all the databases where you can access the journal.

2: Only Have the Article Title? Try Google Scholar

If you don't have the full citation, try using Google Scholar to find the article. Check out Google Scholar Search Tips here.

3: Can't Find it Anywhere? Request it through Document Delivery

If you cannot find the article using the first 2 steps, we probably do not have immediate full-text access to the article, but that doesn't mean that we cannot get it for you! Try requesting it through Document Delivery.

Articles are usually delivered within 2-3 business days.

  1. Begin with general, broad searches, then narrow results with key words and database limiters (usually found on the left side of the results screen).
