Finding a journal or periodical in the library

To find a periodical (Journal, magazine, or newspaper), click on Find a Journal tab on the library home page. Then click on the down arrow next to "begins with" to see other search options. Select the option that you want and enter the title of your journal to see if the library has it in print or online. Journals in print, microfilm, or microfiche are available on the ground floor of Buley Library. If a periodical is available online, you will see the name(s) of the database(s) that contain the full text of articles and the dates of coverage for each. See screenshots below which shows a search for Newsweek.
