Course Guide for Professor Katharine Harmon

Accessing Journals

There are several ways to access journals and the subscribed content within. For browsing, using the Browzine platform is a good way to identify relevant journals and their articles within. However, Browzine is not a complete listing of electronic journals held at our library.

Use the Electronic Journals A-Z list to search for both print and electronic titles; it is a complete list of periodicals we have access to. Electronic titles will identify the database to which the content is accessible as well as the timeframe available. The same is true for print periodicals, identified by the plus mark next to the title. Print periodicals are available on the second floor of the library, in the Current and Bound sections.

Finally, both journals as well as articles can be searched for with the library catalog. An example has been provided below for accessing a comprehensive list.
