No problem. The Library can help you with that. You can Ask a Librarian for help or help yourself through the STU LIBRARY YouTube channel, the Library Workshops in Canvas, or study guides. A Librarian is a "trained research professional" and can help you with quick questions or in depth research needs. We became Librarians because we like people. How can we help you?

How can I get copies of magazine articles for a report I'm writing?

STU has subscriptions to a lot of Academic Databases that have just what you need. Access the Academic Databases by clicking Academic Databases and eBooks above. Watch "Which database should I choose?" on the Library YouTube channel to find the best database for your research need.
