If you have a specific journal article that you need to find, start by searching for the Journal title in either the library catalog ("Search Everything") or the Journals A-Z list. When you have found the title, look through the holdings information to find the year/volume/issue that you need.

For electronic journals, choose the access option that includes the year/volume/issue that you need. 

For print (or "bound") journals that are held in the library, note the call number and proceed to the second floor of the library. Print journals cannot be checked out, but you can make copies on the library's copiers.

Things to know about Journals (both print and online):

  • The library may have access to only a specific range of years - if we have access to ANY range of years, Search Everywhere will say that we have access, but we may still not have access to the year you need.
  • Access to different ranges of years may be through different methods - older issues in print and newer online, or different ranges of years in different databases.
  • If we do not have the specific year/volume/issue that you need, please submit an Article Request through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and we will request a copy from another institution.
