Rhetoric and Composition: Articles/Journals

Discover

The GSU Library has a search box called Discover on the homepage. Should you use it or search one of the library's databases (A-Z databases)? If you try it, here are some tips:

  • Be specific with key words. Example: search "local food movement". Put phrases in quotation marks.
  • Use the Advanced search to limit with additional keywords such as United States.
  • Use the limits on the left such as scholarly (peer reviewed) articles, full text, or library catalog.

You may want to consider searching a database in the A to Z list such as Academic Search Complete , JSTOR, or Proquest Research Library.

Finding articles

Databases may include the full article, but sometimes only article citation is available.

Often, if the article text isn't included along with the citation, you'll see this Find It @GSU button instead. Click the button to get a list of possible online sources for the article you want. You may get several links if we have the article on more than one site.

Not every journal article is available online, so you may need to find it in print. Search GIL for the journal title, just like you'd search for the title of a book.

The process of finding articles can be confusing at first. Ask a librarian for help if you can't find what you need!
