Finding articles online

The Reference Librarians have sent me prowling for journal articles online. Accessing articles from a great number of journals requires a subscription. So what to you do if you get asked for login information?

First, see if Hofstra subscribes. Especially if it is a non-legal journal, to find out if Hofstra subscribes, check Journal Finder . Remember to type in the journal name, not the article name. Journal Finder will also let you know if your article can be found in HeinOnline .

If your journal is available through one of Hofstra's many subscriptions, you will get links to it from the Journal Finder results page.

As always, do not hesitate to ask a Reference Librarian.
