If I have the title of an article, what is the best database to use to find it?
If you have the exact title of the journal article, the fastest method of finding it is to put the title in "quotation marks" into the Summon search box on the Library homepage. If the Library subscribes to the journal, you will be able to click though to the article.
Another way to locate articles for which you already have a citation is by using the Citation search which can be accessed through the quick links menu. You can enter the information that you have, and it return any matches that we have access to.
You may also want to look at the Subject Guides. These will contain a list of recommend for your chosen subject.
You may also find Google Scholar useful for quickly finding an article when you already know the title. Just make sure that you go to Google Scholar through the Library's database page so that you can get access to all of the resources that we pay for, as well as the freely available articles.
