Finding Articles

Why Use a Database?

While the Library Catalog can tell you whether the Library has a particular journal title, it cannot tell you what articles are in a journal. An article index or database allows you to search thousands of issues of different periodicals to find matches for your search terms. 

Databases vary as to what types of materials they include. A database can index scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, books, dissertations, and other types of materials.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a free service for current UT students, faculty and staff. UT-affiliated users can request books, articles, chapters and more from other libraries. Interlibrary loan is intended to fill the need for items that UT Libraries may not own or if current resources have been lost.

To request a loan of a physical item or to request a scan of a book chapter or article, please visit the Interlibrary Loan website and fill out a request.
