How to get journal articles when you know the citation
use this to see what journals we have electronically. This looks at all our electronic databases and subscriptions and finds where a particular title is held. Be sure you check the dates listed. Sometimes there are a few options - and very occasionally one of them doesn't work - so do try the others in that case.
Google Scholar This link opens in a new window
here you can search for an article by title (as well as for academic articles on any subject.) If the content is included any of our subscriptions - and sometimes if it isn't - you can get the full text (if this isn't happening, see "i"
above for More Info.). Hint: try all clickable phrases in a citation before you give up. (You do need to be on campus or using the VPN
for this to work.) You may need to activate this feature. On Google Scholar, click on 'Settings" at the top - then "Library Links" at the left - then find and select Carnegie Mellon University - then Save.
our catalog: use this to see what journals we have in print. This often includes early issues of journals that in later years we picked up electronic subscriptions to. Also, sometimes electronic access is for some reason unavailable to us. The catalog also contains some links to electronic journals, but is not as complete as eJournals A-Z.
if we don't have the book or article that you need, we'll get it for you. Use ILLiad for journal requests. This usually takes only a few days; articles will be sent to you via email.
University of Pittsburgh
If you're in a hurry, there is a chance that Pitt has a subscription, in which case you can get access by going over to Hillman Library and getting a password to their computers with your CMU ID. Here
is where you can check to see their holdings.
