That article was published in the journal "Genre", volume 12 # 3, 1979 on pages 293-311. Unfortunately, I don't find that it is available electronically. It is, however, available in paper copy in the Back Stacks on the ground floor of Stapleton Library. To find out if IUP owns or has electronic access to any journal, the best place to check is the PILOT online catalog. To find PILOT, go to the Library Home Page ( then click on the "Online Catalog" option. Once connected to PILOT, select the "Journal Title Search" option and enter the title of the journal (not the article title) in the "Search For" box. Then click the "Search" button. If IUP owns or has access to a journal title, there will be an entry in the catalog. For items that we have in physical form, there will be a note at the bottom of the full record that says "Library Has" and shows what volumes and years we own, as well as where those materials are located. Most titles are either in the Back Stacks or the Micro Area on the ground floor of Stapleton Library. The Back Stacks are arranged alphabetically by the title of the journal, so you can find the items yourself. If the material is on microform, you will need to request it at the Serials Desk on the ground floor and the student assistant will retrieve the material for you. For items available electronically, the full PILOT catalog record will have a "Linked Resources" note that shows the years of coverage and the database that has that material. Just click on the linked note to go to that database and then follow the prompts on the screen to get to the specific article you need.
