and other resources owned and/or subscribed to by the Penn Libraries.
HathiTrust public domain records are also included.
Location information for print works and links to available full-text are provided. The catalog includes materials that have been order or received, but not yet cataloged.
Franklin Catalog does not contain:
Individual articles in journals, magazines, and newspapers. To search for individual articles, use Franklin Articles+ and other databases available through the Penn Libraries.

No luck? That doesn't mean we don't have access to the article - it could be available in print! Try searching the Catalog for the journal name as a next step.
Select Catalog and search using the journal name. If the library owns the journal, click on the journal name and confirm that they have the proper issue/volume/date by examining the item record page. If they do, you can request a scan of the article by selecting Digital Delivery (under locations where the journal is held).
