Locating Journal Articles

Once you find an article you need, click on the article's Find Fulltext icon fulltext icon to see if Albright has that particular item or check our Journal Locator, a full listing of the serial items that the college can access in print (in the Library) or online.

If you can't find the article at Albright,  the ILLiad Request icon Illiad reuest icon  will allow you to request a copy of an item from another library. First you need to create an account. Once you have an account, you can click wherever you see this icon to generate a request for the materials you need. Articles are scanned and available electronically via ILLiad (you will receive emails telling you about the status of all requests) and take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to obtain.

 

REMOTE USERS NOTE: Students, faculty and staff working off-campus will be asked to enter their network/Moodle username and password to access the library's databases.  Anyone with problems accessing library resources should call 610-921-7211 or email libraryref@albright.edu for assistance.
