If you have a citation, and you want to find the full-text of the article, try using the Find a Journal search on the library homepage.

McConnel, James. "Remembering the 1605 Gunpowder Plot in Ireland, 1605-1920." Journal of British Studies 50.4 (2011): 863-891.

Search for the journal title that features your article. In the example above, you would search for the Journal of British Studies, noting that the article appeared in the fourth issue of volume 50. For some databases, coverage dates are not complete.

If you have the DOI for the article, you can enter that in the second search box of the Journals by Title tab.

You can learn more about finding journal titles on the Finding Journals guide.

Notice, too, that if you find an article cited in a database without full-text, most of the time you can link to the Journal Locator right from the database interface by clicking on “Find Article @ SCSU.”

The link will take you to a page that shows which electronic resources provide the content for the journal, plus the coverage dates. Click on the link to go directly to the resource.
