To determine whether or not the F&M Library owns a journal, use the Journal Finder tab on the library homepage. If the library does not have a journal you need, and you have at least 1 week to 10 days before your assignment is due, you can submit an Interlibrary Loan request to have the journal article acquired for you by the library. Allow 3-7 days for the article to arrive.
