"If I have an article citation, how can I find a copy of the actual article?"


Cornell University Library subscribes to thousands of journal titles so the first step is to perform a journal title search for the periodical in the Library Catalog. You may limit your results to a certain format by choosing an option category on the left. Click on the title to see if the periodical is available electronically or in print.

If you would like to limit your search to journals that are available electronically, use Find e-Journals.

If the item you need is not available at Cornell, you will see an option of requesting the article via the interlibrary loan (ILL). Click the ILL button to go to the item request page. If you need assistance with submitting an ILL request, please ask a member of the library staff.
