Find the Article Text

Article databases sometimes include the full article, and sometimes only have the citation that tells you when and where the article was published.

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.

If we don't have the article online, search GIL for the journal title, just like you'd search for the title of a book. (Note: that's the journal title, not the article title.)

Science journals are on Library South 3rd floor, recent non-science journals are on Library North 1st floor, and older non-science journals are on Library North 3rd floor.

Ask a librarian for help if you can't find what you need!
