When reviewing articles and books, or even searching the Internet, you might come across citations for other articles that you'd like to see.
To find out if the Library has the article, use the Journal Search tab on the Library website, and search for the journal name (not the name of the article).
This will tell you whether or not the Library subscribes to the journal, and in what format (paper, microform, or electronically through a different database), and for what years it is available.
If you find that we own the journal you need, compare the year of the article to the options presented, and use the rest of your citation as a guide to locate the full article.
If we don't have an article at all, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan (see below).
If, on the other hand, you see that the article is only available in a WPUNJ format (WPUNJ Print, WPUNJ Microfilm, or WPUNJ Microfiche), complete an Article Request Form to have us digitize it for you!.
*** Before using your credit card to pay for articles online, be sure to contact the Library to see if we can get it for you, for free!

While it may seem easier to do a web search for information rather than use a library database, you need to critically evaluate web sites. While there are numerous web pages that describe how to evaluate a web site, here are a few that you may find useful:
