Since Penfield Library subscribes to over 16,000 periodical titles, you will find that what you need is usually readily available. Many will have full text links in ERIC, which you can select to go directly to the articles. For others, look for the LinkSource Link to Full Text.
This will take you directly to the article or to a screen that looks something like this:
You will usually see links to other article databases and should look for the link that says article, through which you can directly access your article in full-text online. This is really convenient! Occasionally you may need to do a bit more digging once you get to the database, for example, choosing from a list of dates or searching by article title. If you have any problems locating your article, remember to Ask A Librarian!
If you prefer to use a paper copy of the article, or there is not an article database listed, look for the Journal link that says "Penfield Library - check catalog for holdings." This usually means that we own paper copies of some issues of the journal you need (or in rare cases, just microfilm). Click on Journal and look at the dates of our holdings, comparing the date you need with Penfield's dates of coverage. Our paper journals are located on the second floor of the library, arranged alphabetically by journal title. A scanning station is located on the first floor if you wish to make copies.
If we do not subscribe to the journal you need, either in paper or electronically, you may want to request an Interlibrary Loan. Click on the ILL link, enter your ILLiad user name and password, and submit - it's as simple as that! (If you are not registered for Interlibrary Loan or would like to learn more about this service, see section 7.3
What if you are not working in ERIC now, and want to find articles you have already identified? If you have an ERIC number, go to advanced search, do an accession number search (e.g. ED1234560, and return to the detailed record. Otherwise, read the next section for information on locating journals from a citation.
