Finding Articles

Before you start searching for articles, think of your specific research question and the main ideas you plan to write about. Once you've identified the main ideas you plan to research, combine your search terms using AND to create a search string you can use in a database. For example: anxiety AND mindfulness AND adolescents. For more strategies to improve your searching, see the Searching Strategies page in this guide.

Interlibrary Loan for Articles

If you can't access the full text of an article using any of the resources on this page, use Interlibrary Loan to request the article. We'll locate another library that has the article and get you a PDF copy for free; this typically takes 2-3 business days. UVU students and employees should never pay for articles—the library has you covered!
