Answer

You can search for the article a couple of different ways. Chances are it is in one  of the EBSCO databases. Go to our EBSCO LibGuide (link below) and click on the EBSCO: all EBSCO hyperlink. Check the select all box at the top of the page and then click continue.

Once the search box appears, try searching for the title of your article. It might help to put it in quotations "".

If that doesn't work, try doing a Google search for your article to discover which journal it is in. Once you find that, you can click on publications and search for the journal title. Once located, you can search within the publication.

Start with Academic Search Complete. It is the most likely. See the COM Library Journals Online link for more detailed instructions.
