I Found This Citation...
....so how can I get a copy of the article? We get that question a lot. We have a link on the library homepage to search just journal titles--it is linked below. Click on it and type in the title of the journal you are looking for (NOT the article title), and (if UST has access to the journal--in any format) you will get a list of where we have it. Sometimes it may be online, sometimes only in print at a library, and sometimes it may be in microform in a library. Try it out.
