Did you get the above information from the following article? http://arktos.nyit.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&AN=56452930&site=ehost-live&scope=site. If so, the information you have provided are not article titles. They are summaries of studies. You must use the reference number next to the authors' names to locate the source citation at the end of the article. To determine whether or not we have an article, you must use the Journal Locator to see if we subscribe to the journal in which it was printed. Please view the screen shots below to see how to do this. 

Step 1. Match the reference with a citation (the green, blue, and yellow squares from the table indicate the corresponding citation at the end of the document). The references refer to three separate articles. The title of the journals have been underlined in red. 

Step 2. Access the library homepage at nyit.edu/library. Select the journals tab and type in the name of the JOURNAL to see if the NYIT libraries subscribe to the journal. You will want to review the publication dates for the articles for which you are searching. As an example, we will type in Omega since two of the three articles referenced in the first summary were published in this journal. When we type in Omega and press search, we are provied with a record that tells us the full-text coverage available for the Library's subscription to Omega. Here, the full-text is available from 2001 to 2009. This means that the article from 2004 should be available in any of the databases listed next to the coverage listing. However, it also means that the article from 2000 will have to be requested from interlibrary loan  (use form here: http://nyit.edu/library/article_request/). 

Step 3. Once you have selected a database that contains coverage for your article, you will enter the database (if you are off campus, enter your NYIT Connect username and password). You will have two options to find your article. You can use the drop-down menu (see red arrow) to select a year of publication and specific issue (see blue arrow). Or, you can enter the title of the article and search within the journal (see green box).

Step 4. Access your article.
