Architecture 385: Finding Articles

Global History of Architecture I


Your assignment asks you to create a title similar to those found in JSAH. JSAH is the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, available through the UI Library's JSTOR database. Click here for a list of past issues' content in full-text; note that you can use the search box at the top of that page to specifically search that journal only. All of the articles from this journal are considered scholarly.

Finding Full Text Articles

While some databases include the full text of articles, others only provide citations. Citations may include the Find It link to help you find full text through other sources.

When an article in a database does not include full text, click on the "Find It" link: 

Find It icon

You may be redirected to the article, to the library catalog, or to interlibrary loan.

Below is an example of an article that is available online. Clicking on one of the links after "Full text available at" will take you to the article.
