The following are steps that can be generalized, somewhat, to find other articles when you know the journal title and the date. Change the specifics as needed.

  1. Start out with our homepage:
  2. In the middle of the page, there is a section that says [Books & Ebooks] [Journals] [Online Databases], etc. Move your mouse over [Journals] and then click on "Find a Journal Title".
  3. Enter the name Psychology Today as your search term. Click Search.
  4. You will be given a list of databases that have the journal, pick from the list. For instance, pick Academic Search Premier.
  5. You will have a list of dates in a range, you need May/June 2006 so first click the year, and then that particular issue.
  6. Finally, move through the articles until you find the one you need. This will take a few pages.

As I mentioned above, this is a general set of steps and can be adapted to find a wide variety of articles when the journal title and date is known. If the date isn't known, a lot of the databases, after you click on them after the title search, have a "Search Within This Publication" option. You can enter the article title then (most recommended) and search just for that article in that journal.
