Accessing a journal article

Click on View Article to be taken to the page that has the article. This will be an external link that opens in a new tab.

Citing a journal article

Should you want to cite an article, three standard citation formats are available: MLAAPA, and Chicago. In your search results, click on the Citation button, then the format you want, and the catalog will make it available for copying.

Find the button to the right of the article title:

If you open an article’s detailed display (by clicking on the title), the button will display in a slightly different location, but the Citation button will still display to the right of the article title.

Mobile and accessibility modes

Find the button in the “three dot” menu to the right of the article title:
