The first step would be to check the Journal List.  Enter the Journal title and search, if we have that particular journal the journal list will tell you we have it in print or electronically and if we have it electronically it will let you know which database(s) you can find it in.

If we have it in print, the Journal List will note that by stating "DUC Print."  You can then look in our periodical collection.  

The Periodical Collection is adjacent to the Reference Desk and area, with all the journals shelved alphabetically. Go to the correct letter and locate the journal, keeping in mind that you must have the correct volume and number for it. You may then copy the article as they do not check out.

If we have it in a database, click on the database with the correct date range for your article.  You can then follow the date, volume and issue number to your article if you have a citation that you are working off of, or you can search the database for the title of the article.
