Does the Library Have the Article I Need?
To locate and retrieve articles or books that are cited in a bibliography or Works Cited page, use Library OneSearch or the Library Catalog to determine if Kresge Library has access to the item. For example, to find the article:

Harpell, J.V., Andrews, J. J. W. (2010). Administrative Leadership in the Age of Inclusion: Promoting Best Practices and Teacher Empowerment. Journal of Educational Thought, 44(2), 189-210.

The most direct ways to search are by:

  1. Title in Library OneSearch. Use the article title - Administrative leadership in the age of inclusion: Promoting best practices and teacher empowerment - not the title of the journal (Journal of Educational Thought).
  2. Journal Title in the Library Catalog.  Use the title of the journal - Journal of Educational Thought - NOT the title of the article.
The results of both searches indicate that the University Library has access to this article online and in print.
