Does the Library Have This 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:

  • Marsh, H. W., & Richards, G. E. (1988). Tennessee self concept scale: Reliability, internal structure, and construct validity. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 55(4), 612-624.

The most direct ways to search are by:

  1. Title in Library OneSearch. Use the article title - Tennessee self concept scale: Reliability, internal structure, and construct validity - not the title of the journal (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology).
  2. Journal Title in the Library Catalog.  Use the title of the journal - Journal of Personality and Social Psychology - 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!
