Looking for a specific article?

February 17th, 2012 by Brian Lym

You are starting your research and have come across an article or paper that you really want to get.  Where do you go from here?

A quick way to find scholarly articles is to use  Google Scholar on the Hunter Libraries databases page.    Just enter article information–title is usually enough–and you’ll see a link  to the fulltext article.  This works for articles that are in journals that the Hunter Libraries subscribe to (there are thousands!).

This Google Scholar method works well with scholarly articles.  But what if you are trying to get a magazine or newspaper article?  Your best bet is to first search for the magazine or newspaper title through the  List of Journals/Magazines or CUNY+ and search for the Journal Title.  Note the volume, issue and year of the article and match it up with our holdings.

If a journal is not available at Hunter College, request the article via Interlibrary Loan. Requests are delivered as PDFs.

Still stumped?  Ask a Hunter librarian for assistance!
