SPED 8990--Research Seminar in Special Education (Vail): When You Already Have a Citation

Getting That Article

When you have a citation in hand, for example, from the bibliography of another article, and you want to get THAT new article in hand, do this:

Libraries Homepage>>Journals Tab>>Type in the title of THE JOURNAL, NOT THE ARTICLE TITLE, leaving off any leading articles (a, an, or the) from the JOURNAL TITLE (Journal of College Student Affairs and NOT THE Journal of College Student Affairs)>>click the "Find it @ UGA" button>>open the Text Options Page which will open in a new window.

If what you need isn't available in full-text, scroll down to see if we own it in print. GIL Classic is the best option for this as it displays the holdings all on one page. Click that link and GIL will look it up for you.

Still don't have it? Keep scrolling down the page and there will be a link to Interlibrary Loan. The request form will be partly filled out for you already. Interlibrary Loan will track the article down for you and send it to you as PDF.
