To find article citations use a printed or electronic index, bibliography, or database to locate a citation to an article about a particular topic. If you are not sure which source to use--ask a librarian! A successful search will provide you with a list of citations. Citations contain all the information you need to obtain a copy of the article, usually including the article title, author, journal title, publication date, page number(s), etc.
You will need all of this information, so be sure to write it all down and keep it handy.

Periodicals (magazines and journals) owned by the Pace University Library are listed under the link for Journal Title Search.
Your results may consist of more than one journal if the beginning of the name of the journal/magazine is popular. Be sure to locate the correct publication based on the name and, in some cases, the publication location of the journal.
If the listing is for Pace print holdings, you will be brought to a catalog screen when you click on the link for Pace print holdings. The catalog will direct you to the Paper (current issues), bound or microfilm (MFILM) periodicals area of that library.
Current issues, generally from the past year, of all journals are at the Periodicals Desk (the front desk at Mortola). Request the issue from the librarian. You will be required to provide your Pace ID card in order to retrieve these materials. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE PERIODICALS FROM THE LIBRARY! A hold will be placed on your record if you do not return periodicals to the desk.
There are three Pace library locations: the Birnbaum Library in New York City, the Law Library in White Plains and the Mortola Library in Pleasantville. You may need to scroll down the screen to view more copies or locations. Be sure to read the screens carefully.
Depending on the database, you may be brought directly to the journal page or to the general database search page.
If the article you need is only available in print, microfilm,or bound from another campus library, you can request it from another campus within the library catalog. When you are viewing the catalog record for the journal, click on the Request button.
Follow the prompts for completing the online request. Articles from other Pace Library locations generally take 2 to 3 business days to arrive. Requested articles may cost $0.15 per page to cover copying fees. You will need to call the library to check on the status of your order or stop by the Circulation/Front desk and inquire. When the article comes in, you can pick it up at the Circulation/Front Desk.
If you determine that Pace does not have the item, you may request it via Interlibrary Loan.
You can make a copy of an article using any of the library’s photocopy machines.
