How to find articles
Finding periodical articles can sometimes be challenging, but if you have any questions or run into problems, please ask for assistance.
Many databases have full-text built-in for some or all of the citations. These are usually in PDF or HTML format.
On the library's home page, the "eJournal Finder" (also known as "AtoZ") lists ALL periodicals in print or online available at LTU. Look up the title and select the link for the year needed.
Includes LTU's journal titles with holdings in print or online. Find citations to articles and often link directly to full text.
For citations that do NOT have full-text, look for "LinkSource" - may apper as "LS" or "Find at LTU", etc. Look around the citation, as each vendor puts it in a different place. LinkSource will attempt to find the full-text or give you a menu for further exploration.
About half of the library's physical collection is made up of periodicals in bound volumes, microfilm, or microfiche, and the holdings are all listed in both TechCat and via the eJournal Finder.
Lists holdings at libraries all over, including in a library near your home. Search by title, and look at the holdings for each relevant record. Note that the same data is available in TechCat+ (also known as WorldCat Local) in a slightly different format.
Get articles the library does not own from another library. Submit the correct citation information using the Interlibrary Loan link in the record or this electronic form.
Did you know?
That Lawrence Tech Library owns or has electronic access to more than 100,000+ unique periodical titles available either online, in print, bound volumes, microfilm, or microfiche?
Should I limit only to full-text?
It is not always a good idea: since each database has its own full-text items, why limit yourself? Using LinkSource, you can get full-text from any of the 101 databases that Lawrence Tech licenses for you. What is not full-text in one database may be full-text in another. Let LinkSource help you get to the full-text you need wherever it is. And if LinkSource can't help you, let a librarian help you.
