Finding Full Text

Databases are great for finding articles on a topic, but they don't always have the actual article available. If I want an article that isn't included, I search Journals by TitleA searchable list of all the journals, magazines, and newspapers the Library has access to.question mark from the Library's website to see if it is in the Library or in another database. If the Library has it, I can find it in Journals by Title.

I use the article information from the databases (such as the date, volume, and issue number) to track down the article once I know the Library subscribes to the journal.

To use Journals by Title, I go to the Library's homepage, click Find in the navigation bar at the top of the page, then click Journals by Title. On the page that opens, I then type the name of the journal into the search box and click Search. Remember, Journals by Title cannot find articles by their title, only by the name of the journal they were published in.


Let's see how this works by looking up a journal. First, I click on Journals by Title on the Library's website and then type Nature in the search box and click Search.
