FAQ: I have no idea where to start! Can you help me?

When you arrive in the Periodicals Department, you are most likely in one of these two situations:

You already have an article identified, and you just need to find it.

Ask at the Periodicals Desk for assistance.

You do not have an article identified yet.

Once you find an article, write down enough of the citation information (journal title, volume, issue, page numbers, article title) so that you can find the article.

Periodicals staff will be happy to sit down with you and get you started on your search
