The class assignment sheet given to you by your particular professor lists any specific criteria the article must meet. Be alert!

Students will be asked to print/scan/save the journal article they find on a topic of their choice having used the above parameters presented in class, they will summarize the article and will write an article reference/citation in APA Format.
The Librarian is available for individual help as well, as needed.
Have you found the perfect article but don't know if we subscribe to it? Here are some steps you can take.
1. We may have access to the journal in another database. In Library Central under the A-Z link, you'll find the Periodical Holding List. From here, you can check a comprehensive list of databases in which our journals appear.
2. Try searching for the title of the article in Google Scholar. Any research that makes use of taxpayer funding must be eventually released to the public--you might find an openly available copy of your article.
3. We can go to other libraries that subscribe to the journal and have them send us a copy. You can find a direct link to the ClioWeb interface here.
