Interpreting your results:
The main column on the page consists of the results of your search. You can sort the results by publication or relevance, and limiters that can be used to narrow your search results appear in the right column of the page.
When you find an article that interests you:
- Tip: If you have a choice to use a PDF or an html version of an article choose the PDF for accurate page numbers!
- If there is no online access, don't forget to double-check Periodicals by Title to see if the Library has a print subscription.
If the library does not have access to an article in any form, copy the citation information into the online Interlibrary Loan form.
- If you are looking for additional material that the EKS does not possess, feel free to check WorldCat.org to identify material for ILL.
