Distance Education: Finding articles using a citation

Library resources for students taking web-based or off-campus courses.

Finding Articles if You Already Know the Citation

If you already know the citation for the article you are trying to find, the easiest way to find the article is to use the BGSU Citation Linker tool. Simply fill in as much information as you know from the citation, and click the Look Up button to link to the article.

Does the Library Carry This Journal?

Search the library catalog from the library homepage by clicking on the black BGSU Catalog tab at the top of the page.

Enter the title of the journal you are searching, and click on the button in front of Journal & Magazines, then search.

What if the library doesn't have my article?

Interlibrary loan is the system we use to get research material we don't own.

How does it work? First set up an ILLIAD account, and then fill out the request form for each article you want, from inside your ILLiad account. When a copy is received, you will get an email from the interlibrary loan office prompting you to log in to your account and download your articles. Don't wait too long to do this; the articles will be removed in 2 weeks from your account.
