The way to find journal articles in the MSMU Library is to search one or more of our subscription databases.
The Interdisciplinary Database on the Research Databases page is the best place to start your search for articles.
is an excellent multi-subject database to begin an article search. It
is a collection of scholarly, popular, and newspaper articles, many in
full text. It includes full coverage of the Los Angeles Times, a large
collection of full text nursing journals, and an international business
database called ABI/Inform.
Begin by typing key words that are relevant to your subject into the search blank.
Search tips: Separate each keyword or phrase with “and” for a more
precise result. Click the box that limits the search to full text.
If you have found a citation or abstract with no full text attached, try the following strategies.
When you cannot retrieve the full-text of an article from a database
and MSMU Libraries do not carry a print edition of the journal, you may
request the article from one of our document delivery services.
Please print out the article’s citation and abstract, fill in the ILL form, and give them to any MSMU librarian. You may print out an ILL form on the Library web pages.
The MSMU librarians have a number of ways to retrieve the full text
of articles, including a traditional document delivery service that
mails articles to the library. Please plan for this and request
documents early in the research process.
