CO 425: Broadcast Century Issues: Find Articles

A guide to research for Prof. Keith's course on Broadcast Century Issues

Where's the Article?

If a database search tells you about an article but the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:

Integrated by the BC Libraries into many databases, "Find It" helps you get the article in one of three ways:

  1. If an article cited in one database is available in full text in another online source, there will be a direct link to the full article or, in a few cases, to the journal.
     
  2. If the journal in which an article appeared is available in hard copy in the BC Libraries, there will be a link to Holmes, the Boston College Libraries online discovery tool. Click on that link and then on "Find it in Library" to see where in the libraries you can find the specific issue.
     
  3. If the article is not available electronically or in hard copy at BC, there will be a link to Interlibrary Loan Request, which will bring up a form through which you can request the Libraries to obtain the article for you (usually within 24 hours) from outside BC.
