The library subscribes to many different databases that search the indexes of thousands of journals to help you find articles from journals, magazines and newspapers, as well as streaming videos and more! You can search and get full text from any computer with Internet.
Once you have found the description for a useful article in a database, you will need to get the article itself. The full article is called the "full text" in a library database.
Anytime we have an article in the print periodical collection at Kent Library, it will be labeled "Holdings in Kent Library" in the article linker. The library will scan and send any article from our print periodical collection and send it to you.
To do so, click the Interlibrary Loan link as if we did not have the article in our collection and submit your request. Staff will scan the article for you and send an email when it is available for your use.
Citing your sources is important because it gives credit to the person who published the idea originally, and allows readers to check your evidence. Your instructor should tell you which style of citation to use (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.).
Use Kent Library's 'Citation Styles: MLA, APA, Chicago, and more' research guide for recommended websites and style guides for citing your sources.
If you need help searching the databases, filling out the Interlibrary Loan form, citing sources, or if you are experiencing extenuating circumstances that prohibit you from accessing or retrieving materials, please contact the reference desk .
