Finding Specific Articles

A guide which outlines different ways you can look for the full text of an article for which you have the citation.

Searching by article citation in OneSearch

OneSearch is the University Libraries' tool for discovering the resources in the University Libraries collections. The simple search box allows researchers to discover credible and reliable library content with a single search and see results in a relevancy-ranked list. Researchers can access full-text content when available, locate items in the libraries' collections, or request items through interlibrary loan if necessary.

Let's say you need to find this article:

Akemoglu, Y., & Tomeny, K. R. (2020;2021;). A parent-implemented shared-reading intervention to promote communication skills of preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder. Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 51(8), 2974-2987.

Start by typing a significant phrase from the article title in quotation marks into the OneSearch search box on the libraries' homepage. 

OneSearch search box with this in the box: "A parent-implemented shared-reading intervention to promote"

Your article should be right at the top of the results list, along with a link to the full text, if it's available.  In this case there are two ways to get to the full article.

OneSearch results for an article, with 2 arrows.  One points to a PDF icon, another points to a link that says "Full Text Online."
