CI 5313_CI 5314 Human Growth and Development: Finding Articles

This guide was created for Dr. Langerock's classes CI 5313 and CI 5314.


This video demonstrates finding articles using START YOUR RESEARCH.  If you need to find articles published in Scholarly Journals specific to Education please see the DATABASES and SEARCH TECHNIQUES tabs.

Start Your Research

Start Your Research feature on the library homepage searches many databases simultaneously and is a great place to begin your search for articles especially if you do not know which subject databases you should search.


You can also search for a specific article title in Start Your Research by enclosing the title in quotations marks.

"Engaging families at the secondary level: An underused resource for student success"

Periodical List

If you need to search for articles within a specific journal, use the Periodicals link on the Library Homepage to see if the library has print/online access. 


When the Periodical List search displays you can search by journal title or ISSN.


If the library has access to the journal you will see a list of links to the databases (with dates of coverage) where you can search the journal.


Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Request articles through Interlibrary Loan that are unavailable through the library. 

If you would like a copy of an article found in a print journal at a Texas State University Library you can submit the request through ILL

Google Scholar

Search Google Scholar from the Database homepage and your result list will include links to articles available through the library.



If a copy can be accessed through the library there will be a link to the right of the article stating "Findit@TxState".
