How Do I Find Articles?

Purchase College Library subscribes to more than 130 research databases in a variety of subject areas. In order to find articles and citations to articles, you will need to search within these databases.

Don't know which database to use? Academic Search Complete or ProQuest Research Library are good starting points for many subjects.

What if the database does not have an electronic version of the article? Most databases will have a Find It button that may link you to the electronic version of the article in another full text database. You can also search for a specific ejournal, or do a Title Search in the catalog to see if a print version is available in the library.

But what if the Purchase College Library doesn't have the journal you need? Purchase College students, faculty and staff may submit an Interlibrary Loan request to obtain copies of the articles you need from another institution; if the article is available, a copy will be delivered electronically to you.

Off-campus Access to Library Resources

To use subscription resources from off-campus, you must have a Purchase College email account and you must access the resources from the library’s web site. When you try to access the library's subscription resources (e.g., databases or online journals) you will be asked for your account username and password. 

  • username = firstname.lastname (e.g., Tess Smith would use tess.smith as her username. Note: do not add @purchase.edu)
  • password = your Purchase College email password

Troubleshooting:

If you encounter problems, first try accessing your email account and be sure that your username and password are working properly.  If your email is not working properly, contact the CTS helpdesk 914-251-6465. If you are able to access your email, but cannot access our resources, contact Susanne Markgren, Digital Services Librarian, 914-251-6415, or the Library Reference Desk at 914-251-6410.

Note: Be prepared to discuss your problem and any error messages you have received.  Often, we need this information to determine exactly what’s wrong and how to help you.

Our subscription resources are restricted to a specific valid group of users. If you're a Purchase College student, faculty or staff and do not have an activated Purchase email account, you can activate your account from the Students Services page or the Employee Services page. Choose “Email Account Activation.”
