This tutorial covers how to determine if an article you have found while performing an online search (Google, Google Scholar), or from a citation is available through the HNU Library.
This tutorial covers:
We also cover what to do when the HNU Library does not have access to a PDF of the article you want.
The fastest way to see if the HNU Library has a copy of the specific article you need is to simply copy and paste the article's title to perform an Article Search in the HNU catalog. However, if it is still unclear if the article you want is available you can search "Journals by Title" to make a determination.
Collect all of the relevant information you will need to search for the article:
|(Info from a Webpage)||(Info from a Citation)|
a) Journal Title; b) Publication Date; c) Volume and/or Issue Number; d) Article Title; e) Page Range
Go to the library's homepage and click on the "Journals by Title" tab to check if the HNU Library has Full-Text access to the journal where your article is published.
Enter the title of the journal where your article is published to search through our subscriptions.
If the HNU Library DOES have Full-Text access to the journal where your article is published,
then you will need to check that our subscription date range covers the publication date of your article.
If the article you are hoping to locate was published within the library's subscription date range, click on the link to browse
through the journal for your article's specific volume and/or issue number, article title and page range.
If your publication date is not available, you will need to place an Inter-Library Loan (ILL) Request.
If the HNU Library DOES NOT have Full-Text access to the journal where your article is published, then you will see this message:
If the HNU Library doesn't have a subscription to the journal where your article is published, you will need to
