Finding Articles by Citation

There are three options:

  1. The most direct option is to go to the "Locate the Article from Your Citation" link.
     
  2. The second option is to go to the UCLA Library Catalog.  Under "Search" type the title of the journal or book.  Then click on the drop-down menu and select Journal Title (Start of) or Title (Start of). Select your title from the list and see if UCLA owns the item you seek. If there is an ONLINE ACCESS link, you can find the full text online. If there is not a link, see if the article is available in print, then go to that library.
     
  3. The third option is to go to the UCLA Melvyl Catalog. In the search box, type the title of the article or book. Add an author to be more specific.  If the title If the title appears, click on the title and look for "Find a copy in the library" or click on the UC-eLinks button to access the full-text.
