Searching for a Journal Title

To search for a specific journal title:

  1. Click on the Journals link on the library home page
  2. Enter the title of the journal (or magazine or newspaper) in the search box
    • If you know the exact title of the journal, select Match Exact Words  from the dropdown menu
  3. This will either:
    •  List the journal including the date ranges available and the database it is located, or
    • The journal will not be listed.  If the title is not listed, you can request the journal's article through interlibrary loan. 
  4. Look at the results and select the title that has a date range that meets your needs.
    • For example, if you are looking for a current article select the entry that includes the present.
  5. Click on the journal title. This will take you into the Journal page in the database. 
  6. From here you can search within the publication for a specific article title, keywords or issue.
