Emergency Medical Services (EMS/EMT): Find Articles

Suggested Journals and Magazines

Find a Specific Article

If you have the citation for a specific article, here is how you can figure out if PCC has the article and (if we do) get to it in full-text:

  • Use the PCC Library search box in the middle of the Library homepage to search for the title of the journal in which it was published (not the article title).  TIP: If you don't know the title of the journal, try searching for the title of the article and the author(s) in Google to get that information.
  • Find the journal title in the results list. If you find a result that says "Online Access" or "Available at" and a PCC campus location, that means it is available through the PCC Library. If it is available online, click on the Online Access link to be taken to full-text online database access for that journal. If it is available in print, click on the "Available at" link to find the location of the journal in the library.

  • If you chose "Online Access",  you will be taken to a page with "View online" options through databases made available through PCC Library. Click on any one of these.

  • You should now be able to browse to the year and issue you want or to search the journal for the specific article title.

If PCC does not have access to full-text, you can request the article through interlibrary loan.
