Education Resources: Finding Articles

Finding educational materials including books, articles and websites to help with your research.

Google Scholar

Use Google Scholar to find scholarly articles.  The drawback is that not all articles are available for free, and articles may not be as current as those in the library's databases.

Google Scholar Search

Find a Journal Title

Use Find a Journal Title to quickly find out if Lightner Library has access to a specific journal title either in print or online.  You can link to Find a Journal Title from this LibGuide or you can find it on the library's home page.  If you find the library has access to a journal electronically, you can go directly from Find a Journal Title to the online journal.  If the library has the journal in print, ask a reference librarian or someone at the circulation desk to show you where the journal you are looking for is located.
