MUH 4212: Music of Western Civilization 2: Locating an Article

Research guide for Professor Joella's MUH 4212 Spring 2017 class.

Best Practices for Locating an Article

1.       Identify the title of the journal (Example:  Early Music) and date from the reference to the article that you need.

 

2.       Go to the FAU Libraries home page by typing in www.fau.edu/library. 

 

3.       Under “Quick Links” click on “Electronic Journals,” which is an alphabetical list of journals that we have online, and type in the name of the journal (Example:   Early Music).

 

4.       Locate a database (Example: Oxford Journals Online) where your journal and year can be found, and click on the database name.

 

5.       In the database, click on the year of the journal that you need, and locate by date and page numbers (or title) your article.

 

Example:     Roche, Elizabeth.  "Visualizing Handel."   Early Music, 37(Feb. 2009): 135.

                                         http://em.oxfordjournals.org/content/37/1/135.full (accessed September 6, 2012).

 

 

6.      If you have the citation for the article, then you can also use the "Citation Linker" on the Electronic Journals page to find the article.

 

7.    You can also use SearchWiSE to find the full text of an article, by typing in the author's name and the keywords in the title.  (Example:  "Elizabeth Roche" and "Visualizing Handel").
