Other Library Resources
To conduct searches on individual databases (such as PsychINFO or MLA Bibliography) please go to the new A – Z Index of electronic resources.
For specific searches use the:
- Library Catalogue to search for physcial materials in the Library’s onsite collection;
- Subject Guides to find databases/electronic resources for specific subjects/disciplines; or
- Library’s old A to Z directory of Electronic Resources to access public domain & open access resources not searchable through the Discovery Service.
To consult online reference materials please browse the Library’s reference collection.
So you think that you’ve found a really good article, but you’re not sure that you can get full text access. Have you:
- searched the Library Catalogue to see if the journal is in the Library’s print periodical collection? Or,
- looked for the Journal in the Library’s Print Journal Collection?
If yes, then conduct a journal title search to see which database/collection might be able to provide you with access to the journal title with the full text of the article in question. The Journal Search Directory will tell you:
- if the StMU Library provides access to a particular journal title; and/or
- where you can gain access to a particular journal title (online or in print), provided that StMU Library has access to it.
