Finding an article from a citation


Sample citation:

Exposing the true nature of chocolate. Michael Lipske. National Wildlife 41.3 (April-May 2003): p18 (2).


First, check to see if the article is available electronically:

Looking in Electronic Journals

The Library provides access to some journals electronically.  Click on the “Articles, Books, Journals, etc” link on the Library homepage (, scroll down and click on the “Electronic Journals” link, then search by the journal title (not article title) in your citation, or browse the title list by clicking on the first letter of the journal title.

The links from the Full Text Electronic Journals page could take you to several different ways of accessing the title electronically.  Some just link to the database containing the full-text of the journal.  Others pull up all articles from the journal within the database.  Yet others pull up a listing of each issue of the journal within the database. 










If the article you need is not available electronically, then look to see if it is availavle in print:

Looking in the Library Catalog

To check the library catalog, click on the “NMSU Libraries Catalogs” link,  select the "Author/Title/Subject" search option, then the “Journal Title” search from the list of options.  Again, remember to use the title of the journal, not the title of the article.

You need to look at individual entries to see what exactly the Library owns and where it is located.  Generally only the current, unbound issues are in the Current Periodicals Reading Room in Branson.  Older journal issues may be bound and filed with the books upstairs, or replaced by microfiche or microfilm format.  All formats will use the same call number for the journal. 

Check the location using charts available throughout the library or online at 



If the article is not available:

InterLibrary Loan  

After checking the library catalog AND the electronic journals links, if you can’t find the journal listed in your citation, use the Interlibrary Loan service to obtain a copy of the article.
