Q. How do I find out if the library has an article that I found a citation for on Google Scholar?


First, make sure that you are signed in with your Manhattan College email. This should happen automatically if you are on campus as Google Scholar will detect your IP address as placing you on campus. To access it remotely, make sure you are using the link with the proxy.

Once you have logged on you should see Find full text  in the margin next to any article that the library has access to. However, if "Find full text" doesn't appear next to the article you want, there's another step you can take to see if the library has it.

Take note of the journal title, its volume and issue, and year. Next go to the Journal List and search for the title of the journal in the citation. If it is in any of our databases, it will appear alongside the years that we have access to that journal. Click on the link next to the year range that contains the year the article you want is from. 

If the journal doesn't appear on the list you can always request the article via interlibrary loan.
