Find an Article from a Citation

Here's a citation for an article...how do you find the whole article?

Gaultney, J. F. (2010). The Prevalence of Sleep Disorders in College Students: Impact on Academic Performance. Journal of American College Health, 59(2), 91-97. 

This citation is for an article published in 2010 in the Journal of American College Health, a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal. There are several ways of determining if the article you're looking for is available at Berkeley:

Option 1: Look up the journal title in OskiCat or Melvyl.

You can also search for the title of the journal (NOT the article title!) in either OskiCat or Melvyl.  They will tell you:
  • if we subscribe to the journal you're looking for
  • which years we have
  • whether our subscription is print ("hard-copy") or online
  • what the call number is (for print journals)
  • where to find the journal online (for online journals)
  • what's the latest print issue we've received (OskiCat only)

OskiCat

OskiCat is the online catalog for many of the campus libraries (but not all).  Oski will reveal which books and periodicals we have along with what's in our film and map collections.  It does not contain indivisual periodical articles; to find them, you must use indexes. 

A productive way to begin using Oski is by doing a key word search.  For instance, try this search:

indian* captivit* narrative*

At 2:54 on February 21, 2013, this search produced 645 records.  Using the box that, by default, says Entire Collection, you may sort the results or limit to specific formats or library locations.  You may also sort by date or title.  Let's take a look at a record:
