Info on How to Find Journal Articles

You can use the Rod Library website to search for individual articles, to search for specific journals, or to directly access third-party databases.

Use the OneSearch! Catalog tab to search for articles by title, author, or subject keywords.

Once you get your search results, you can, for example, limit Source Type to Articles, limit Availability to Peer-Reviewed Journals, limit the years in which articles were published, etc.

If you are looking for a specific journal, you can also search OneSearch! for the journal's title. It may be helpful to put the title in quotation marks.


To go directly to a specific database, go to Databases A-Z. There, you can browse an alphabetical list of all Rod Library databases or narrow them down by subject, vendor, etc.
