How to find articles and conference papers

Use research databases to find journal articles and conference papers on your topic. For example:

  • Search Compendex.
  • Search for: unmanned aerial vehicles AND search and rescue
  • Find the conference paper by Toussaint, De Lima, and Pack:
    • "Localizing RF targets with cooperative unmanned aerial vehicles" Proceedings of the American Control Conference, 2007, pp. 5928-5933.
  • Click on its title; read the abstract. [Clicking on the Main heading, Controlled terms and Uncontrolled terms links will give you more journal articles and conference papers about those subjects.]
  • Click on the red McGill "Find Full Text" or the blue "Full Text" link to search for the paper online.
  • If you are not offered the article full-text, then search the library catalogue using the article title and if not successful, using the journal title. If the library does not have the journal or conference, then get the paper through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). There are no charges for ILL; McGill Library subsidizes this service.
