Finding Specific Articles & Journals
If you're looking for a specific article or journal, your best bet is to use Library OneSearch to determine if the University Libraries can provide access.

Let's use this article as an example: 

Solomonson, W. (2015). What can we learn from I-O? Performance Improvement Quarterly, 28(2), 3–6.

You can search for the article using using the its title in Library OneSearch -- "What can we learn from I-O" in quotation marks (as shown) -- not the title of the journal (Performance Improvement Quarterly). The results of this search indicate that the Libraries do have access to this article online.

If you wanted to find additional articles from Performance Improvement Quarterly, you use Library OneSearch's Journal Search to look for that specific publication. A search for Performance Improvement Quarterly indicates the Libraries have this journal online.
