The yellow "Get it @ ASU" links or other full-text links within our databases should take you to the article if we have it. But if it doesn't, it's a good idea to check further. There's a good chance that we might still have the article you need. There are several ways that you can do this:
Search the title of the article in Library One Search. If you put the title of the article in quotation marks into the search box it will be a little more specific, but that's not always necessary. Usually just a simple cut and paste will work.
Search the title of the article in Google Scholar. Sometimes there's a direct PDF link in Google Scholar but if not, use the "get it @ ASU" links to take you to the article if the library has access to it.
If that method doesn't work you can also use our Journal Title Lookup feature to lead you to the full text online if we have it or to see if we have it in print.
These are also the methods you can use to find an article if you have gotten a reference from another source, such as a bibliography, and already know the citation information (journal name, volume number, date, etc.).
PsycInfo . Remember that you can also find the link to the PsycInfo database under "frequently used resources" at the bottom of the library home page. Please note that there is *not* a direct link to PsycInfo from within the "myASU" portal, so it's much easier and faster to get there from the library home page or the link that is provided for you here.
It is sometimes helpful to limit your search to the vocabulary terms that PsycInfo assigns to each article. This can help focus and narrow your search and can be extremely useful in many cases. Here is a quick example of how to search with PsycInfo thesaurus terms:
PsycInfo has a "cite" button that will allow you to generate a citation for your bibliography. This is great! Just treat this as a "first draft" of the citation, because it does have mistakes. So be sure to check it very carefully! Here are some sources that will help you learn more about APA Style.
