Why use a database to search for articles when you can simply “Google” something? Here's why!
For a simple search across authors, titles, subjects:
use a keyword - any word(s) - search.
Also try accessing the article through the RU Library link to Google Scholar
Article not online? Go to step 3
If we do not have the article online check on the OPAC whether we have the journal,
book chapter etc. in print
You will be able to photocopy the article, or scan and email it to yourself.
Article not online and not in a print book or journal? Go to step 4
Articles date back to the late 1800s.
We have a card catalogue of authors,and families of fishes, up to the early 1990s.
The later reprints can be found through a search of Fisheries And Aquatic Biodiversity Worldwide Many of the articles on this database have full-text links.
If not full-text, you can photocopy the article in the Reprint Collection, or scan it to yourself.
You also look for older articles on the Biodiversity Heritage Library website
Still can't find the article? Go to step 5
We are always happy help you trace an article.
