Complete article citation

Use the Citation Linker when you have a complete citation, including the journal title or ISSN, the volume/issue/number, page numbers and publication date. Enter all of your citation information in the Citation Linker form (the numerical parts of your citation, including the date, are most important). You will hopefully get a link to the article online, or at least a link to the journal that contains the article (drill down using the articles volume, issue and page number to get to the specific article).

When print or microform copies of the journal are in our collection, links to the catalog record for these formats will be listed; you'll need to click through these links to see exactly which dates and volumes are available. Remember, you can use the Desktop Delivery service to have articles from print journals scanned for you.

Finally, if neither online nor print access is available, use the link at the bottom to request the article from interlibrary loan.
