Library Help: Find Articles

Use Discovery Search to find articles

University Libraries search tool has changed from Summon to Discovery Search. Use this link to access Discovery Search.

Use Get VText service

After you have searched for an article in a database, you'll want to access the actual article. Some, but not all, of our databases will include full-text articles. When the article needed is not available in the database, look for the Get VText button or link to access the article elsewhere.

Access articles and databases from off campus

As long as you start on the library's website, or configure Google Scholar to show Get VText links, you'll automatically be authenticated to access our subscribed resources like journals, ebooks, and streaming videos. There is no need to do anything in advance.

Place an interlibrary loan/ILLiad request

Then first time you login to ILLiad, you'll be prompted to create a profile in the system. Afterward, you can request books, videos, articles, patents, theses and dissertations, and standards.
