Searching for Journals and Periodicals


A journal is any kind of open-ended serial publication:  scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, annuals, and periodicals of all sorts.  It includes both electronic versions available online and hardcopy, printed and microform publications.

To search for a particular journal, use the Journal Search tab in the top menu. The records in your results will indicate whether the title is available online, or in print, or both.

Once you have located a journal or periodical, you can click on the title for full details about it, including all versions of full text availability and locations and call numbers of physical copies.

You can also search inside the title for specific articles.
