Option 1. Use Discovery.

Type the name of the article in the search box of Discovery. Enclose it in quotation marks for accuracy.

Click the Catalog tab on the library's homepage.

Select Title from the dropdown menu under the search box.

Find the item in the results list which matches the periodical for which you are looking. Under the title, you can see the date range of Libraries' subscription whether it is in print or available online.

In the example of Sociological Methods and Research, the journal is available online.

Choose option that covers the year in which the article appears. In this case, the article was published in 1990, so we need to click on the the link that represents coverage from 1972-1998.
