How to Locate Articles

Articles can be found by searching in an index or by using an online database.  The first step is to choose a topic or subject that you are interested in.
Whether you are using the print indexes or the online databases, you can find articles by looking for/typing in your subject/keywords.

If you are looking in the print indexes, you will have to find out if Herkimer College owns the journal or magazine the article was printed in. This information is available either in the print “Herkimer College Periodical Holdings” blue binder at the Circulation Desk, or online at the listing All Herkimer College Journals, Print and Electronic.

If you are searching the online databases many of the articles are available full-text and from there you can print them or save them to your computer.

If our library does not own the journal or magazine, or if the article is not available in full-text, you can use the Interlibrary Loan service to order the article. There is no charge for this service.
