Finding Articles

There are a couple of ways to find journal articles:

  • OneSearch: Use this resource if you are looking for articles that address a multidisciplinary topic or you are just beginning your research. OneSearch searches most of our electronic resources as well as those located in the library (books, paper journals, etc.).
  • Electronic Databases: If you are doing more advanced research in a specific discipline, take a look at the Electronic Resources page to find our electronic databases. Select the tab for the general subject area of your research.

From a Citation

Sometimes you will already know about a particular article you want to read when,

  • your professor recommends a specific article.
  • you have a citation from the bibliography of a book or from another article.
  • you have read an encyclopedia entry about a topic, and the author provides suggestions for further reading.

When you already know the important publication information about an article, search OneSearch to check both paper and electronic availability. 

If an article is not available among our paper or electronic resources, Lawrence students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to submit an interlibrary loan request.
