Where's the Article?

If you search a database and the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:  or FindIt@BC.  Find It will offer help including:

  1. If BC has the full text in another database, you will be taken to a list of databases for the full text. 
  2. If BC subscribes to the print journal where the article appeared, the Catalog will say Find in Library and you can check which library or libraries may have the year/issue you need and where it is located.
  3. If the article is not available online or in print at BC, use the link to Request the item. We can usually get the article from another library within a few days and email it to you.

Keeping Current

Many  databases and electronic journals provide automated current awareness services which email newly published article citations directly to you or send them  to a feed manager.  Alert services can be customized to keep researchers abreast of current developments and publications in one or many fields of interest.

Several services such as RefAware, covering  over 8,000 peer-reviewed sources, and  Web of Science (Science Citation Index; Social Science Citation Index; Arts & Humanities Citation Index), tracking  new articles in over  8,500 research journals,  are multi-disciplinary.
