It is most important to first have an idea of what subject one would need to find articles on. Once a topic is developed, choose relevant keywords that reflect the language used to describe the topic. Then search your chosen database or the library catalog.
If an article is unavailable digitally in a database, or through Google searching, you will often be able to find the article in print through the catalog or you will be able to request it through interlibrary loan.
Making an interlibrary loan request is a simple process. Fill out the linked form (after logging in with your id number and name) and your article will come to you digitally in as soon as a couple days.
