Does Capella Library Have It? Finding Full Text

There are times when you may find a reference citation for a journal article or book that you would like to read for yourself–such as from a reference list, your courseroom, or an internet search–but how do you find out if it’s available from the Capella Library? If you have the full citation, including the journal name (e.g., Gender in Management, Mental Health Review Journal, etc.) or the book title, then the Journal and Book tabs on the library home page are the best way to find out.

See our Journal and Book Locator guide for full directions.

If all you have is an article title, then you can try searching it in Summon, using the search box on the library home page. It helps to search shorter or more generic article titles by putting them in quotation marks:

Example: “Stress, aging, and mental health”

Summon article title search

If you can’t find your article or book in the library after checking Journal and Book Locator and/or Summon, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Please read the ILL policy before requesting an item.
