The most common way to search for journal articles is to use a bibliographic database. Bibliographic databases contain citation information for journal articles, technical reports, conference proceedings, etc. A database may also have an abstract of the article, as well as keywords that describe the article. Because databases cover different content, you may have to search multiple databases for a comprehensive search.
You can customize Google Scholar to show you links to articles through OSU Libraries. Go to the "Gear" icon in the upper right corner of the Google Scholar page. Select and set your Scholar Preferences by entering Oregon State University in the Library Links field and choosing the "Oregon State University Libraries - Find it at OSU" option.
Interlibrary Loan is a free service that allows you to get journal articles that are not at OSU Libraries. To use this service, log in with your ONID username and password and fill out a request form.
You will receive an email when your article has arrived. Please allow at least one week for your article(s) to arrive.
