DOI is an acronym for Digital Object Identifier. This link is to the organization who created DOI's.
If you have a DOI, the quickest way to locate the associated article is using the "Articles" search on the library home page. Search results generally are successful and provide a link to connect you with the article, but only if we subscribe to it.
Using the library's "Citation Finder" search tool is another quick way. This search tool is easily accessible through the "LIB A-Z" listing (located at the top right on any library webpage). You can click on "Citation Finder" or the "D.O.I. (digital object identifier) search."
You can also search a DOI in Google or Google Scholar. If you are on campus or logged into the off-campus access, a link to the item will appear in the search results. That link will connect to the article if the library has subscribed to the journal or is provided by open access.
There are also open-access DOI resolvers that look for free versions of papers. Here are some links:
