POL 440: Research Seminar in Politics and History: Finding Journals

Overview of library resources

Find a Journal Title


Use Find a Journal Title to find out if a specific journal, magazine, or newspaper is available online, in print, or on microfilm in Lightner Library.  Always search by the journal, magazine, or newspaper name and NOT by the article title.

If the article you want is online, you can click on the link for the database that has the date of the issue you want. 

If the article you want is available in print or on microfilm, you can find the article in the library to read it.  Journals, magazines, and newspapers are located throughout the library:

  • Current Periodicals:  Main Floor, Circulation Desk, Basement
  • Periodicals:  Basement
  • Current Newspapers:  Newspaper rack near main floor stairway
  • Newspapers:  Circulation Desk
  • Microfilm:  Main Floor

If you are unable to locate the print journal that you need, please see a reference librarian or ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk.
