Engineering: Introduction to Library Resources: Finding Journal Articles

General library information applicable to all engineering disciplines.

Finding Journal Articles

While you are searching a database, you can mark the pertinent items and email the citations/abstracts to yourself. If the database you are using provides the full text of the article, it will be in PDF and/or HTML format--just click on PDF or HTML to open it.

If the full text is not provided in your search results, click the “Find It @ SCU” or “Link” button (depending on the database you are using). A new window will open to provide available choices in this order:

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

2. Links to OSCAR (catalog) record if we have the journal only in print.  Bound issues of journals can be retrieved from the automated retrieval system (ARS) by clicking on "Request from ARS" in the full catalog record. 

3. Link to Interlibrary Loan if we do not have the journal. Fill out the citation information and article will be emailed to you.
