If the article you are searching for does not display, then use the options in the left-hand pane to refine your search (Author, Journal Title, etc).
|6.||If you still can't find the article you are looking for, or if there are too many search results, try using the Advanced Search option (beside the search box on the Library Search screen).|

This will expand the results to include those that may not be covered by the Knowledge Network subscription.
