How do I Find Journal Articles?

There are several different approaches to finding journal articles, depending on your starting point.

1. If you are looking for a known item (you know the author, article title, journal title, date, volume, etc.):

  • Try Articles Plus. For instance, search for the title of the journal and click the "Find It" button to get access.
  • Search the Library Catalog for the journal title and use the "Find It" button

2. If you are exploring a topic, use an article index such as ATLA Religion Database. This approach is more comprehensive than going to JSTOR.

3. If you are looking for a particular journal online, search the Library's e-journal index.
