How to Access Reading

When you are given a citation for any article, you should follow this process:
  • Go to the library homepage (
  • Click on "Search Catalog" (this is like a database or a portal that will get you to the publication you need)
  • Click on the "Journal Title" tab
  • Type in the name of the publication you're trying to find (Remember: It is the name of the magazine, journal, or newspaper and not the name of the article)(e.g. Chronicle of Higher Education)
  • Click on the database that contains the year that your article was published (in the case of the Wikipedia article you can click on "Academic Search Premiere" - see image below)
  • Click on "Search within this publication" on the right side of the page
  • Search for "Can Wikipedia ever make the grade"
