less likely to find irrelevant articles, but you may also have to do a little more work to find what you need.
Searching for a known item
Find a known item by doing “Title Search” using LibrarySearch.
Library Search can be found on the library homepage. You'll get better results if you choose the 'Title' radio button before doing your search. This works for both specific articles and for journals by name.
For articles: If you see your article in the results list, it may be available in full text in one of our databases, or you may be able to request it.
For journals: If we have access, you can choose the Access options and then browse or search within the journal.
