Online Students Library Orientation: Articles

This guide is designed to help online students navigate library resources and services.

Searching for Articles

To locate articles, you can use OneSearch or the Database listing page. There you can select from an alphabetical list of all databases to which Dacus Library subscribes or go to the Databases by Subject page which gives you the most appropriate databases for subject areas. From either place you then select an individual database to search.  

Many of our databases do provide links to full text articles in either PDF or html format. If we do not have access to an online full text version, you can search in OneSearch for the journal to see if we have access to it through another database. 

You can place an Interlibrary Loan order for the article if you cannot find it online or in Dacus Library. Remember, it can take up to 6 days for the library to receive articles ordered through Interlibrary Loan.
