Searching for a Known Article: PSU Library Catalog

Search for an Article Using Google Scholar

Use Google Scholar from the PSU Library, and enter the title of the article. If the Library has the article, there will be a link to the right, Find it @ PSU.

Find it @ PSU leads to the full text article in the PSU Library catalog.

If it is not available full text through Google Scholar, PSU Library could still hold the article in print. Search for the journal to see the Library's holdings. If the library does not hold the journal at all, request it from Interlibrary Loan & Article Delivery.
