Locating Journals at MSU

To find a particular journal, enter the journal title into the search box of the Journal/Periodical Title Search

The results will show whether or not the library subscribes to the journal and has the issue that you need, in a print or digital format.

If the article you need is only available in print, you can have a copy emailed to you free through MSU's MARS system

If MSU does not subscribe to the journal you need, you can request a copy of the article through Inter-Library Loan


Start with PubMed anytime you need to locate an article.

Use the databases listed below to find citations (and sometimes, electronic full text) of journal articles. If you have any questions, or are hitting a wall with your research, please get in touch with me right away!
