If you have the full citation for an article:
Click on the Find Ejournals link on the library homepage, enter the journal name to see whether we have a subscription to the journal and what years we have access to online.
If it's an older article and we don't have online access, check the library catalog for the journal name. We have some journals still in print. You can check out the print journal, or request a scan of an article through https://docuserve.library.caltech.eduDocuServe.
If we don't have either online access or a print copy, request an article via DocuServe (our Interlibrary Loan service).
If you don't have the full citation information:
Enter the information you do have into a database like Web of Science or Google Scholar and when you've found the article click the Caltech Connect button to see if we have online access. Again, if it's an older article and we don't have online access, check the catalog to see if we have a copy in print.
If you have the DOI or PMID:
Enter it into CitationLinker and go directly to the article (we may or may not have access).
If you're still having trouble finding the article, Ask a Librarian. We can help.
