Scholarly vs. Popular

This video explains the difference between scholarly, popular, and trade publications.

Getting Full Text Articles

The Brandel Library can often provide a link directly to the PDF of the article you need. After searching a library database, links with the phrase "Full Text" should all resolve to the PDF of the article.

Some of the time, however, the library won't have access to the full text of the article. In those cases, you will need to use the "Request via WorldShare Interlibrary Loan" link to request the article. The WorldShare Interlibrary Loan service is free to students and most articles arrive within 4 days.

Find an Article from a Citation

Lists of references are a great place to find additional articles. If you see a citation that looks interesting, search for the title of the journal using the library's online journal search tool.
