Q. How can I find a journal article in the library website?


Log into the library website (https://studentlogin.aiuniv.edu/portal/5/library/pages/libraryhome.aspx) and use either the search box on the main page or visit the Find Articles and eBooks page (top left), select the desired database, and search there. You should consider what information you are looking for and form that into a question (Such as: “Does alcohol prohibition lower automobile accident rates?”).

Take that question and identify the key subjects, then use those as search keywords. (Example: For the above question I might use: alcohol, prohibition, automobile, accident). In your search results, there are filters to the left. You can use those to limit to Journal Articles. You may also need to search a few times using words that mean similar things to those you have already used. (For example, instead of ‘automobile’ I might try ‘car’ if I’m not seeing the results that I want).

If you need additional help, use the contact information on this page to contact the library!
