Search Tips When Looking for Articles

1. Conduct advanced searches when possible.

2. Make use of limiters.

3. Read the bibliography of articles and make note of:

  • Journals that are cited frequently
  • Authors that are cited frequently

4. If you find one good article, read it carefully and make note of any primary research that is cited within.  Search for that primary research later.

When we don't have it...

Resources not owned by the Campbell University Libraries can be borrowed from other libraries through ILLiad, an interlibrary loan (ILL) system available to Campbell faculty, staff, and students as an aid to research and study. Request it through our Interlibrary Loan service and we will borrow it from another library.  This service is free of cost.  Please allow up to 4-5 days for book requests, and 2-3 days for articles.

Check out the online tutorial to learn more about ILLiad.
