Search Strategies

  2. Many indexes include full-text articles in PDF, TXT, and HTML formats.  Use the External Link Icon  icon to for links to other options, such as requesting a copy from another library.
  3. If you have a citation (Journal name, article title, year, volume number, etc) use the Journals List to locate content.
  4. Double check the GSU Library Catalog to locate journals in print and microfilm formats, if not found in the Journals List.
