Finding Specific Articles

If you already have a citation to a specific article, use Journals by Title to locate the article.

Journals by Title will tell you if the UALR Ottenheimer Library has access to the journal, magazine, or newspaper.

Most journals, magazines, and newspapers can be accessed online; however, some are only available in print or microform (microfilm or microfiche).
