If you have a list of citations, the best way in which to see if the library has access to the full text is to search by the name of the journal using the Journal Title tab on the library webpage. Using the example below:

Owusu-Ansah, E. K. (2003). Information literacy and the academic library: A critical look at a concept and the controversies surrounding it. Journal Of Academic Librarianship, 29(4), 219-230.

If Pace subscribes to the journal, your results will show a list of the databases in which you can access it. Click on any database that covers the year the article from your citation was published. 

Now you can search within the publication using keyword, title and/or author, or you can go directly to the issue and find the full-text of your article there.


If the library only has access to a journal in print or on microfilm, you would have to come to the library in person to get the full-text. If we do not have access to a journal at all, you can submit a request via interlibrary loan.
