Please note: As of April 25th, 2020, you will not be able to request materials through interlibrary loan at the Concordia University - Portland libraries. Please contact your local public library about requesting materials or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help locating full text sources on your research topic.
Use the library catalog to find out if the library has full text articles from a specific journal, either in print or online form.
1) After clicking the link to the catalog, type the exact title of the journal (e.g. Action in Teacher Education) and click Search.
2) If the library has the journal, it will be listed in your results list. It may be in electronic (online) or print (located on the second floor of the library) format. If the journal title is not found and you need a specific article from the journal, use our Interlibrary Loan service to have a copy of the article emailed to you. This process takes about a week.
3) If online, click the Full Text Online link to get to the full text of the journal. A list of databases from which the journal is available will display. Click the link to the database which contains the publication date in which you are interested. You may be prompted to login with your CU network account (i.e. Blackboard account). A new window will open which directs you to the journal content within the selected database.
4) If the journal is only available in print, it is located on the second floor of the library. Journals are shelved alphabetically by title. Look under the Get it section to view which volumes/dates of the journal are available.
