* Business: Finding Articles

This guide contains information on how to do research in the field of business.

Finding a Known Article

If you are looking for a particular article, there are two places to look.

To see if UK has access to the article electronically, check the E-Journals A-Z list--you must search this list by the JOURNAL title, NOT the article title.

To find out if UK owns a paper copy of the article, check InfoKat Discovery. In InfoKat Discovery, you can search for the journal  OR the article title.

If the article is not available either electronically or in paper, you can order it using our Interlibrary Loan Service.
