To find an article when you have a citation (information about the article):

Example Citation

Training Dogs and Training Humans: Symbolic Interaction and Dog Training.  Greenebaum, Jessica B. Anthrozoos. June 2010, Volume 23 Issue 2, p129-141.

Search Process

From the SuperSearch tab (first tab on the library homepage):

  • Type some of the article's title using quotations--but no punctuation--into the search box (Ex. "Training dogs and training humans")
  • Choose the Title button and press Search
  • Click on the .pdf of the article

Or, if this search does not work, try to browse for the article.

From the "Journals Holdings" tab (found next to the "SuperSearch" tab)

  • Search for the journal by title (Ex. Anthrozoos)
  • Click on the title in the GIL-Find results list
  • Select the link under "Holdings" to access the journal
  • Use the publication year, volume, and issue, then page number to browse for the article

NOTE: If we don't have access to the journal or article that you're looking for, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan - FREE.
