Does the Library Have the Journal I Need?

Use the Library Catalog to see if we have access to a particular journal title either in print or online. For example, if you needed the following article, you would perform a journal title search in the Library Catalog for Cognition to find out if we have access to volume 101, issue 2.

  • Stromswold, K. (2006). Why aren't identical twins linguistically identical? Genetic, prenatal and postnatal factors. Cognition, 101(2), 333-384.

 The Library Catalog indicates that we stopped getting this in print in 1992, But we do have this journal online from 1972 to the present

If we don't have your article electronically or in print, you can order the article through InterLibrary Loan using ILLiad. It's free but it does take time.
