My first step is to head to the library homepage. I know that I’m looking in a journal, so I’m going to follow the link for eJournals. You can find this by scrolling down to Resource Tools on the library homepage.
Looking Up a Journal
I know the title of the journal I’m looking for, so I enter it into the search bar.
The journal I am looking for should be the first result. I need to use the Connect button to access it.
The journal is popular and is hosted in several places. Think of this like a show being on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. I just need to choose where I am going to view it. I can see that one site only has the journal issues through 2019, and another doesn’t have the most recent 3 years. I’ll pick American Economic Association (AEA) and click on its link, because it doesn’t have any restrictions.
What's my next step? On the AEA website, I will be able to find the article I'm looking for.
