In order to see if we have access to an article, it's best to have the entire citation. I'll use a sample citation to guide you through the process:
Garrison, D. R., Anderson, T., & Archer, W. (2000). Critical inquiry in a text-based environment: Computer conferencing in higher education model. The Internet and Higher Education, 2(2-3), 87-105.
Here's how we'll find it:
I can't seem to find the article online...
If it's an older article, we may have it in print. Here's another example citation:
Gove, M. K. (1983). Clarifying teachers' beliefs about reading. Reading Teacher, 37(3), 261-266.
You'd search for the journal title as explained above. However, you'll see from the results that the only option we have for articles from 1983 is the Penfield Library Journal Collection:
If you are close to campus, you can come to the library to view the article; our journals are in alphabetical order on the 2nd floor. If you want to use the article in class, go to the Checkout / Reserves Desk and ask them to scan the article so you can put it on Reserves.
If you are not close to campus, you can request the article via Interlibrary Loan. We'll scan the article and send you a copy - usually within a week or so.
The best way to see if we own a book - including ebooks! - is to search our catalog. You can use the search box below!
We recommend searching two places for videos:
