When you have an article that you would like to find the full text of through the library the easiest way is to search the title in quotation marks in our main library UMBrella search. If this doesn't produce any results, try toggling "include results outside library subscriptions" on the left, as this is the easiest way to find and request an article through interlibrary loan. 

Alternatively, searching for scholarly articles is also possible using journal finder.

If you know the title of the journal, you can search UMBrella for Healey's electronic journals. Follow these steps.

  1. From the Healey Library homepage where it says UMBrella, use the drop down to select Journal Finder
  2. Search for the journal title. DO NOT search for the article title.
  3. If the library subscribes to the journal, then you will see links to databases and/or publishers which contain full text articles with a specific date range
  4. Check the date of your citation against the date of the subscription. 
  5. Select the database or publisher link that fits your needs.
  6. Enter your campus username and password.
  7. Browse or search for your article.

If the library does not have the article you need, and you can't find it through UMBrella, you can still request a copy of the article using Interlibrary Loan (ILL), you will just have to manually enter each piece of information (journal title, article title, etc).
