Searching for known title

  • Browse or search our list of Journal Titles A-Z.
  • When searching by Title, use the "Journal Title Keyword" search for important words in the title. Don't use A, An or The at the beginning
  • After finding the journal title:
    • For online resources, click the database link matching the desired date range
    • For titles held at the Library, note the location (bound, current, microfilm, atrium area) for the date needed. Bound, current and microfilm are all on the second floor of the library. Atrium is on the first floor.
  • If journal is not in either location, and you have a citation for a specific article in a specific issue, request it through Interlibrary Loan. Allow up to 2 weeks for material to arrive.

Searching for Subject Information

  • To list the journals, magazines, newspapers, and government publications that cover a topic, use the Cornette Library online catalog:
    • Enter "(Subject) Periodicals" and specify a Subject Keyword Search
    • Examples: "Education Periodicals" or "Social Work Periodicals"
  • Find a database by subject to research a specific topic.

Physically Locating a Print Journal

  • Journals are shelved alphabetically by title:
    • Initial articles such as A, An or The are not considered.
    • Articles are considered when anywhere else in the title.
  • Within a title, journals are by date or volume number, from earliest to most recent.
  • If a journal has changed title, the catalog record will indicate where it is shelved.
