Find a Journal, Magazine, or Newspaper
Type in the name of the journal, magazine, or newspaper
Search to see if we have a particular journal online, in print or microfilm. Carefully note date ranges available. If online, offers links to the databases. If print or microfilm, note the call number and format for the year you need.
Electronic Journals A-Z -- This resource will tell you if a particular journal, magazine or newspaper is available full text in any of our databases. However, it does not know what we have in print or microfilm.
Within a Database
When you are searching in one of the library databases and the article in question isn't available full text right there, look for this icon or a hyperlink that says EWU - Check for Full Text. Click on the icon or link, and this will bring up a new window that looks similar to this:
- If the article is available full text online, there will be a link(s) with the name of the database (e.g. ProQuest, JSTOR, etc.). Just click on the link and you will automatically be taken directly to the article, or at least to a list of issues of the periodical.
- Link to Try searching the EWU Catalog... will appear if the system thinks we have cataloged the periodical. Click on the link to see if we have a print or microfilm copy of the volume/issue you need.
- If it is not online, nor have we cataloged the periodical, then a link to search the catalog by title appears. (This probably means we do not have it. You may request the article via Interlibrary Loan.)
