How to find a good source:
- Do your preliminary research at
Drexel's online databases and printed indexes to identify the
journal article or articles you want to use for your assignment.
Get research help from Drexel's librarians.
Warning: Do not expect research help from librarians at
the University of Pennsylvania. This means do not go to Penn's
Reference Desk for help. Drexel's agreement with Penn does not
cover those services.
- If Drexel does not have the source you found, check
Penn's online catalog, to see if the library has the journal you
search. When you have accessed Franklin, click on "Journal
Title" and type in the name of the journal. Scroll down to see the
call number. Print out or copy the call number.
- Go to Van Pelt Library (see map below), taking the call
number(s) of the sources you are interested in with you.
Warning: Drexel's agreement with the University of
Pennsylvania does not allow you to use Penn's online
bibliographic databases. This is because of the legal aspects
of the agreements that Penn has with its database providers.
- If you have found a call number in the Franklin catalog, but
can't locate the source on the shelf, seek help at the Van Pelt
Library Circulation Desk. The staff there can help
you track down the journal in question.
