There are a number of ways you can search the library website for articles:

1.  Use the search box on the library homepage to search for your topic.  The search box will search for books, e-books, journal articles, and other media.  You can limit your search by selecting options such as "full text", "publication date", and "source type".

2.  Use the "Find Articles" link to get a list of databases that you have access to as an Edinboro community member.  Select the database that you want to search from the list.  Before you search, check a box that limits your search results to "full text" articles.  This will ensure that all of the results that you get are full documents that you can read and/or print.

3.  Use the library catalog to search for a specific journal title.  A catalog search will determine whether we have the journal in our holdings and whether it is in electronic or print format.  

4.  Use EBSCO's Publication finder to browse a selection of journal titles that are available online.


If you are accessing the library databases from off campus, you will need to login to verify that you are a student, faculty, or staff member at Edinboro University.  See the link below for instructions for off campus access.
