Chemistry Lab Library Assignment Help: Finding Journals/Periodicals

Locate Article and Answer Questions about It

As part of your Chemistry Lab Library Assignment, you are asked to locate a specific journal article and answer questions about it.  This section will show you 3 different ways of locating a specific journal article when you are given citation information.  You should be successful using any of these methods, but I am showing you several methods in case one does not work (it happens!).  Try using at least one of these ways to locate your article; try all three to practice.

I will be using the following article as an example.  See the 3 brief tutorials to the right -->


Method #1: Using the Library Catalog

Method #2: Using Google Scholar

Method #3: Using Journal Search
