You have to first identify the source of the reference article you want to look up. So if you picked an article, where does the article come from? What is the name of the journal or magazine? According to your classmate who called us,  the list of references is long and there are both books and journal articles. You may find it hard to distinguish between the two. So one way to determine if it is an article is to see if the reference has a volume and issue number.


Once you determined where the article comes from, you need to look up to see if Limestone has access to the article online. To do that, go to the

 Locate Print & Online Journals by Title located on the library website


Choose the Journals Only option. Then type the journal name in the box.  If Limestone has access to it, there will be listing of which library research database(s) contain that journal. You need to pick the database that matches the date of your article. Then you click on that database, and find  your article by date, volume or issue. If this is not readily available, search by author and title. Once you find the article you want, there should be an option for you to save it to your computer (there should be an icon for Save). You can then attach this article to Blackboard from your computer.
