Finding research

 

Have a specific assignment you need to find resources for?  Need research help?  Librarians can help you and save you time:  Email me to set up an appointment; visit me during my office hours; or, consult a librarian on duty at the McPherson Library Research Help Desk. 

If you are looking for scholarly research or want to explore evidence-based practice, check out these related UVic Library subject guides.

 

Where is my Article?

Where is my article?

The database will tell you everything you need to know about an article (the full citation, and additional information). 

  • Often, the entire article is included in the database. Use PDF links or HTML links.
  • Sometimes you have to follow links from the database to the online article, often via our library catalgue.  Use "Get This" links! 
  • Sometimes, the article is only available in print, and you have to use the Library Catalogue to find out where the journal that holds the article is in the library.  "Get This" will tell you that the journal is only available in print, and for which years.  Use the "Show Me Where" button to determine which floor, and where on that floor, to find the journal. 
  • Sometimes, you'll need to request the article via Interlibrary Loan.  Do this in the 'Get This' screen, or via the ILL request form.
