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.).
Resources on how to cite print and electronic resources for in MLA, APA, Chicago, CSE, and AMA styles.
The Center for Writing Excellence has online reference guides for MLA, APA, and Chicago Styles. You can submit a draft of your paper to the Writing Lab online to receive feedback.
