Here is the process for finding a specific article. In this example, we will look the following article:
Maples, M. F., & Abney, P. C. (2006). Baby boomers mature and gerontological counseling comes of age. Journal of Counseling & Development, 84, 1−8.
1. First check the E-Journal Portal to see if SLU Libraries provide online access to the journal. Enter the journal title into the search box.
Results from the E-Journal Portal look like this:
2. In this case we have access to the 2006 volume of the Journal of Counseling and Development through several different providers. You can click any of the links to access the article.
3. If the journal you need is not available online, your search in the E-Journal Portal will say
"0 records retrieved for the search"
If this happens, check the SLU Libraries Catalog to find out if the Library has the journal in print.
4. If the library has the journal you need in print, use the call number to locate the journal in the stacks.
5. Many older (pre-2000) print journals were moved to the Locust Street Library Facility (LSLF). If you need an article from one of the journals located at LSLF simply fill out an Interlibary Loan form and the article will be scanned and delivered to you electronically via email by the next business day.
6. If the Library does not have access to the volume of the journal you need online or in print, then use Illiad Interlibrary loan to request the article.
