How to Find Articles: Using Tripod Effectively

To find articles, use Tripod, the library catalog for the TriCo Libraries.
  1. Click the Articles tab above the search field. Search by journal title, author, or subject.
    TIP: If you are unable to find an article by its title, try searching by journal title under the Books & More tab instead—sometimes journals aren't searchable by individual article.
  2. Once you've found an article, click the find it buttonbutton. Articles may be available through online journal subscriptions or in print in the library, but...
  3. If Swarthmore doesn't have access, you can get the article using Article Delivery Request
    You'll usually get a PDF by email within 1-2 days.

    TIP: You can access this request form via the main Tripod page's side menu: click on Borrowing Beyond Trico.
