Graduate Student Research Tips & Tricks

Meet Your Subject Librarian

Find Resources for Graduate Student Research

Access Articles

  • Clear your browser's cache. This trick works well to clear up small technical issues. Find out more information about cached data here
  • Article Linker is a tool that can help you find the full text of an article you've discovered in one of our databases. See a tutorial for Article Linker here: Article Linker Tutorial
  • If none of the above works (or if Article Linker isn't showing up), you can directly access a journal by searching for the journal title in the URSUS Catalog. Open the catalog in a new window, then cut and paste the journal title in the search bar. Follow the links until you find the journal, and then search for the article title within the journal to access the full text. 
  • If we don't subscribe to a particular journal, you can see if there is a legally available, open access copy of an article in the UnPaywall database. If there's not a legally available, open access copy, you can request the article for free through Interlibrary Loan.
  • If you still have problems accessing the material you want, Ask a Librarian! We can help you figure out next steps. 

Find Theses & Dissertations

For detailed information on the Thesis & Dissertations available through Fogler Library, the Thesis & Dissertations Research> Guide is a great place to start. Below are some of the key databases outlined on the Thesis & Dissertations Guide:
