How do I Find Articles . .

If you’re looking for articles on a topic, search an Article Database.

  • If you know the name of the database to search, start at the Databases A-Z list.
  • If you’re not sure which database to search, you can search databases in a particular Subject, or just ask a librarian for guidance by calling 412-648-3331 or chatting online at Ask-A-Librarian.

If you have a citation to an article, search PittCat.

If the journal is online, the PittCat record will offer a link directly to the journal database. If the ULS doesn’t subscribe to the journal online, PittCat will list any paper volumes and issues we have of that journal. 

If you’re off-campus . . try the E-journal search.

Search  the Ejournal search by journal title or International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) to find out if we have a particular journal online, and be linked directly to the online subscription.  Remember  that not all journals or issues of journals are available online.  To see if we have a journal either online or in paper, search PittCat for the journal title.

If we don’t have the journal or article you need, request the article for free through Interlibrary Loan.
