The easiest way to locate a journal is to search the MSU libraries' online catalog

Conduct a title search of the journal that contains the article you want. For example, you've found the article "The Old Ball Game: Organization of 19th century Professional Base Ball Clubs" in the Journal of Sports Economics, Aug. 2004, Vol. 5 (3), pp: 277-291.

From the Main Library's homepage, click on Advance Search: Catalog, click on Title, type in (the title of the journal) in this case Journal of Sports Economics.

If MSU has access to the title, there should be links to the paper and/or online version of the journal. MSU has this title online from 2000-present. so the article "The Old Ball Game: Organization of 19th century Professional Base Ball Clubs" is available electronically.
