Journal articles may also be available in paper or microform. To locate print journals the Library owns, search HillSearch. Information about searching HillSearch for journal titles is available on the Library website. If the item is not available in the Library, then you can use Interlibrary Loan to request an electronic copy from another institution.
If you have a citation for an article and would like to know if the library has access to the publication, search by the journal title using HillSearch.
