- Search the Cornell Library catalog main search box by journal title. This is the definitive way to see if we have access -- first look up the journal title, then look for whether we have access to the journal during the year that your article of interest was published in.
- In the Cornell Library catalog, click articles and full text to perform your search. This method finds most articles that the library has access to.
- In the Cornell Library catalog, search in the main search box for the article title. This method finds most articles that the library has access to, except for newspaper articles.
- In the Cornell Library catalog, click E-Journal Titles and perform your search. This method only finds online journals.
- Google Scholar or Google search for the article title. This method will allow you to access many text articles via Cornell's subscription while on-campus. If you're off campus, try using Passkey.
