Getting Journal Articles


When you are searching for journal articles many will have full text links under the article citation--PDF, HTML or Linked Full Text. If there is no link, try using the FIND IT button to see if we have it in another database. If the Find It button leads to a page that says "no electronic access is available", you may still be able to get the article by using the Request from another library button at the bottom of the page. This generally takes 2 to 5 days and will get you an email telling you to go into your Interlibrary Loan account to find the link to the article.

Always either print out the article or download the PDF file to your computer because Interlibrary Loan links don't last forever. If you have a hard copy or a downloaded PDF you will still have the article after the link is gone.

Newspaper Sources

In the newspaper indexes use the Advanced Search option, specify a particular day and year in the date search boxes, type Sports Writer or Sports in the search box.  Once you've done a search you can then click on a specific article that looks sports oriented and click on the link. Over on the right a bunch of page thumbnails will open up and you can click on one of those and look at the page in the newspaper. You should be able to navigate the Sports Pages in the paper that way and see what was going on. You may need to pick several dates per year (so you get seasonal sports) and take a look to get an idea of what was going on during your decade.
