Instead of pursuing a
needle-in-a-haystack approach by browsing through the tables of contents
of many periodicals, use periodical indexes. They will help you pinpoint
periodicals containing specific articles about your topic.
This Library has periodical
indexes. Some (print) are located in the Indexes Area on Level 1. Some
(electronic) are found by accessing the Library's homepage through
computers in the Library's InfoCommons on Level 2.
Periodical Indexes index articles found
in many periodicals, much like a book indexes its pages.
Magazines, Journals and Newspapers
Each periodical index covers
- All subjects
- Over 1800 periodicals
- 1980 to present
