Find an article

Articles can be found electronically and in print in the Catholic University  Libraries. 

Step one: Start your reseach in SearchBox (the articles tab).

Step two:  Search a Nursing database using keywords pertinent to your topic. If the article is not available in full-text from a particular database, click on the "360 Find It" button.

Step three: Search CU's Journals for print and electronic journals. Works well when you have a citation, but not full text.

Step four: If CUA does not have the article you can request it through the Washington Research Libraries Consortium (WRLC) Consortium Loan Service (CLS).

Step five: If the article is not available through The CUA  Libraries or CLS you can request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Step six: Contact your library liaison at:
