Step 1

Go to the Carnegie Vincent Library homepage: HERE

Step 2

Search for the desired journal in the Piper catalog search box.

Step 3

If we provide electronic access to the journal, you will see a “View Now” link beneath the journal.

If we do not provide electronic access to the journal, you will not see a “View Now” link.  If your article is from a journal that we do not have electronic access to, you may have to request the article from Interlibrary Loan.

Step 4

Select the “View Now” link, if available, and choose one of the “Access Journal” options given.  You will be able to see the years that we have access to this journal here.  For articles that were written in years that we do not have access to, you will also have to submit an Interlibrary Loan request.

Step 5

If prompted, log in with your LMU credentials.

Step 6

You will be taken to the journal homepage.  Here you may search for the desired article by title or issue.  Sometimes this will be in a link that says "all issues," "current issue," or "archive".  Journals provided by Gale publishing will have a drop-down menu of years from which you can select the year of the relevant article.

You can tell which volume and issue you’re looking for by referring to the citation you have.  See the print-able handout above for a citation example.
