Answers @ Georgetown Library - Just Ask


I have a citation for an article. How do I find it?

There are several ways you can go about this.

The simplest thing to do may be to enter the citation into Google Scholar. If you are on campus, or your Scholar Preferences (Library Links) are set to Georgetown, you may be able to link through to the full text. (Look for the Find Full Text @ Georgetown links in the search results.) This brief video shows you how to set your preferences to Georgetown if you are off campus.

If that doesn't work, here is a flowchart that will guide you step by step through the process of getting the full text of an article when you have a citation.
