If you have a citation for a specific article, use the Catalog to see if the CU Libraries have a full text copy of the article online or in print. Type the exact journal title in quotation marks (e.g. "Journal of Science Education and Technology"). If the libraries do have the journal, you will see a screen similar to the following. If you do not retrieve any results, you may request the article through interlibrary loan.
Click the Access Online tab to view the databases from which the journal is available. Dates of full text availability show below the name of the database; choose the database that contains the date of your article.
Once you have opened the database, you may choose to search within the publication for your article or you may click a year link to locate the issue in which the article was published. (Look for similar links in Gale or ProQuest databases.) Full text articles are available in either PDF or HTML (plain text) format.
If the libraries have a print copy of the article, you will see a catalog record like the one below. Click the "Item Status" tab to view the date range of issues the libraries own. A dash after the date indicates the libraries have a current subscription to the journal. Print issues are located on the second floor of the GRW Library.
