To locate the full text of journal articles not available in the database you were searching:
1. Write down or print out the citation information of the article or articles you want to find, or open a new browser window. The citation information includes the article title, article author, journal name, publication date, volume number, issue number and page number.
Alternatively, you can select the "Find @ UNC" logo seen below, which will take you through similar steps as this page.
Enter the title of the journal in the search box.
If the library subscribes to the journal in electronic form or through another online database, it will appear on the results page. Be sure to note the dates available. Select the appropriate title. Be sure to note that you can view the same journal from several different sources. Be sure to select the option that covers the date of your article.
Use the information from the article's citation to find your particular article within the E-Journal.
3. If the library does not subscribe to the journal in an electronic form, you should search the library's online catalog to find it in print. On the UNC Libraries homepage (http://www.lib.unc.edu)select the catalog link (UNC-Chapel Hill Catalog) just below the search box for the catalog.
Select journal title and enter the title of the journal in the search box. Select the search button.
The catalog record will indicate if the library subscribes to the journal in print. If so, note the dates to make sure they correspond with the date of the article you need, and the library and call number where the journal is located. Please note that many print journals available in the library may not be checked out. However, scanners and copiers are available if you would like to make a copy of an article.
4). If the UNC Libraries do not have your article, you have a few options:
a) You can try searching for the particular journal and issue you need by using the TRLN search to see if other universities in the Triangle area have the journal in print.
b) You can try searching Google Scholar to see if the article you need is available on the open web.
c) You can complete an Interlibrary Loan request for the article.
