Finding Articles

This guide is for providing helpful resources on topics relating to Youth Ministry.

Finding Articles

Finding journal articles can sometimes be difficult, but they can be extremely valuable to your research. To find an article, simply click on one of the databases below and then type search terms into the database search bar.

These databases are good supplements to the first two.  For example: If you are focusing on a particular topic, such as "Christian Education in East Africa," it might be beneficial to search within the Education Research Complete database.  

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.
