There are a couple of good ways to search for an individual article in full-text. The most reliable way is to use the 'Journal Finder' tabbed search on the library's homepage, searching by the title of the journal itself to see what years we have access to it in full-text and in which of our databases it is held. Once searched you will see what print and electronic access to it we have. For more recent issues, the electronic version is usually the way to go, so click on the 'View Online Access for UNCA' button and then select the database corresponding to the year you need. At that point you can find it by the year, volume, and page number or by searching in the database.

The other, somewhat less reliable way is to use the 'Google Scholar' tab on the library's homepage and search your article there. This often works and is much quicker but not always. 

Of course UNCA doesn't have full-text access to everything, so if you do not find something you need in the library, we can usually get what you need via Interlibrary Borrowing, including books, articles, dissertations, and theses. All you need do is request it and give us time to have it sent here. If you have trouble or questions, let us know! We are happy to help!
