Find Articles

Look for Articles

Periodicals include magazine, journal, and newspaper articles; some are in print on library shelves and many others exist online in library databases

Databases are free to registered students.  Log in with your W# and eservices password.

Instructors may ask you to find scholarly, peer-reviewed, or journal articles.  Use this guide to discover the differences between magazines and journals.

Reading, printing, and emailing articles

Find an article title you like.  In Ebsco databases, hover on the lens icon to read the abstract.  Click on Full Text  (HTML or PDF) to open the article.  The tools on the right side of the screen allow you to put articles in a folder, print, email, and save them. 

When you email or print, you can include the citation in MLA style.  Check citations for errors; these are created by robots.
