Let's say you have a citation your professor has given you, or you've found a citation for an article while doing your research, there's an easy way to track it down and see if we have access to it.  

Let's look for this article - 

Read Supplemental Material: K. Weber, A. Johnson, and M. Corrigan, “Communicating Emotional Support and Its Relationship to Feelings of Being Understood, Trust, and Self-Disclosure,” Communication Research Reports 21 (2004): 316-23.


When you have a specific citation you are tracking down, the easiest thing to do is:

  1. Start at the Library's home page -
  2. Across the top, look for "Research Tools" >> "Find it @ FIU / CitationLinker
  3. Clicking on that will bring you to a search form, you can just type in the title of your journal (Communication Research Reports) in the appropriate spot, and maybe the year of your article, and search
  4. If you are off-campus, at this point it might ask you to login
  5. You should then be brought to a results page.  If the article is covered within our subscriptions, it should bring you to where you can access the fulltext or to the journal's homepage.  If the article is not available, it will will give you a "Sorry no results" page where you then have options to try to find the journal in print through the catalog or request the article from our interlibrary loan service.
  6. So from the journal's homepage, you can then drill down to the year-volume/issue-page number you are looking for, for your article
  7. When you find your article you will be given fulltext options for PDF download.
