  • Available at = we have it physically (in print and/or microfilm). Note the location and the call number. Click Available at to view the years we have available.

E-Journals -- Alphabetical list of the journals, magazines and newspapers we have online in our databases. It will not show if we have it in print or microfilm in the library.

If we do not have the periodical you are looking for, you may request specific articles via Interlibrary Loan.

Historical Magazines in EWU Databases

Select Historical Magazine & News Sources (U.S. History)

*Note: Most of the magazines listed below are indexed in the Reader's Guide Retrospective database (see above).  For ones not indexed in the Reader's Guide, we will usually only have the last 20-30 years of coverage available online.  Some magazines have an online archives where you can search for article citations (dates, page numbers, etc.) for free.  But remember that they are businesses who will want to charge you for access to their magazine.  So get the citations for articles you want and then search the EWU Catalog to see where we have the print/microfilm copy of the magazine (probably in the lower level of the library).  If we own electronic access to a journal in a database, then you can do a keyword search for articles to find citations or full text.  If there are electronic finding aides available to you, then try going to the date of the historical occurrence and work your way forward in time.
