To find journal articles, you must consult databases.
Visit the guide Finding Journal Articles for in-depth information on how to search a library database or contact your liaison librarian, Virginia Wilson (email@example.com), for assistance.
When you search the databases and get a list of results, click on the yellow Find It button to see if the library has access to the full text of the article. If you come across an article that the library doesn't have access to, you can obtain it through our Interlibrary Loan service. This service is free to faculty, students, and staff at the U Sask. Find the submission form here:
The Search Strategy Builder is a tool designed to teach you how to create a search string using Boolean logic. While it is not a database and is not designed to input a search, you should be able to cut and paste the results into the standard database search boxes.
Write out your research question or topic thesis as a sentence.
