Did you know that almost all of the magazine and journal subscriptions purchased by the library are available online through our website?
Most students and faculty are familiar with our databases (Academic Onefile and Lexis-Nexis for example) and use those products to find articles on different subjects for their research projects. But there is also another way to get access to individual magazines and journals online: the Journals by Title link. Located on the library website under the green Find section, the Journals by Title link offers a quick and easy way to look up a particular magazine or journal to see if the library has a subscription. So, you can search here for The New Yorker, for example, and discover that we have online access to issues going back as far as 1999, in several different databases, available right from your desktop or laptop. Journals by Title also gives information on our print subscriptions as well, though online is the more common format by far. And with a collection that includes over 40,000 different online magazines and journals of every type, you’re certain to be able to find something of interest on the list. From InStyle Magazine to Advances in Algebra, we’ve got just about every subject covered. So the next time you need an article from a magazine or journal, whether for academic research or just for fun, visit the library website and check the Journals by Title link to see if we’ve got it. –Virginia Cairns, Head of Reference and Instruction
