One way you can find journal articles is to first search for your topic using the main search option on the libraries' homepage

When you get your search results, go to the "Articles" category to find journal articles with your term(s). If you know the exact title of the journal you are looking for, putting the title in quotation marks will help bring it higher on the search results. Go to "Journal Finder" and select your journal, then conduct a search directly in that journal's search box. 

Additionally, consider searching for journal articles by using a subject specific database

If you are looking for an article(s) from a specific journal you can search for that journal by title by selecting the "Find" tab and selecting "Journals" and searching for the journal title. Once you find the journal, do a search using search words on your topic or the title of the article.
