ENGL 8050 - Advanced Research in English Studies (Chisunka): Research Help

This is a guide for students in Dr. Chisunka's English research class (ENGL8050).

Finding an Article with a Citation

Very often you will have a citation in hand - either from your professor, or from the bibliography of a book or another article. The easiest way to find the article in question is to use the library's Journal Locator.

Journal Locator

When you enter the name of the journal in which the article appeared, Journal Locator will search all of the library's databases as well as the print collection (located on the 2nd floor), and link you to the content for which you are searching, if it is available.
