  2. You can also find links to a known citation by searching Google or Google Scholar on the library's homepage.
  3. Another way is to go to a research database in the field, like PubMed, and search for the article 'doi' or the article title.
  4. A fourth way to check is by looking under "Journals" or Journal Title Lookup and type in the journal title.
