How do I find.....

If you have a particular journal article you are looking for, there are several ways to search for it in our collection.

One of the fastest and easiest ways is to set up Google Scholar so that you are authenticated as a Fielding student.

Then look up the title of your article.  If we have it, you'll see a "Full-Text @ Fielding" link which will link you through to the article in our database.  If we don't have it, another entity may have posted a free copy.

For example, to find this citation:

Eagly, A. H., Johannesen-Schmidt, M. C., & Van Engen, M. L. (2003). Transformational, transactional, and laissez-faire

leadership styles: a meta-analysis comparing women and men. Psychological bulletin, 129(4), 569.


Look up the title of the article on Google Scholar.  The link on the right-hand side of the results page allows me to access this from the Fielding Library databases.  Note that "" also links to a copy:
