How to Get Articles 

Once you find articles that interest you, you can mark them and email the citations/abstracts to yourself.

To obtain the full article, click the “Find It @ SCU”  or “Link” button. A new window opens to provide available choices in this order:

1. Links to full-text if we have journal online

2. Link to OSCAR (catalog) record if we have journal only in print (this is extremely rare in the sciences--most journals are electronic!)

3. Link to Interlibrary Loan if we do not have journal. Log into your account, the form will auto-fill, submit, and the article pdf will be emailed to you in a few days. (If you don't have an Interlibrary Loan account, there are options to create your account.)

You can also search for article titles in Google Scholar (Google > "More" tab, upper left  >  Google Scholar). If you are on-campus, look for the  “Find It @ SCU”link.
