Finding Journals

Find an article citation and wonder if we have the journal at UMW Libraries?

Example:

Ready, D. D. (2010). Socioeconomic disadvantage, school attendance, and early cognitive development: The differential effects of school exposure. Sociology of Education, 83(4), 271-286.

Sociology of Education is the title of the journal in which this article was published. This article is published in Volume 83, Issue 4, from 2010.

You need to search the Journal Search using the title of the journal (Sociology of Education), not the title of the article.

Once you find the journal, you will need to see if which database includes the volume / year of the article you want to find.
