Finding Sources: Searching Journals


Finding Journals

Probably the quickest and easiest way to find journals is to use the Journals by title List located on the USMA Library Research page.

If you know the name of the Journal (or ISSN) you're interested in, click Journals by Title. Enter the name of the journal (or ISSN) you are looking for, and click "Search." The resulting list will let you know if we subscribe to that journal, in what form (print, electronic, microfilm) and the coverage dates.

USMA Library print and microform periodicals

If a journal is noted as being available in print or microform, it can be found on the second floor, in the microform or journal stacks or current periodical shelves. Ask a staff member for help in finding the one you are looking for, and for assistance in viewing microfilm or copying from a bound journal.

The most current print issue of a title is located on the slanted shelves in the periodical area on the 2nd floor. Back issues are on located on the shelves beneath the current issue.

Electronic forms

Most of our journals are available in electronic form.  Often, a journal is provided in more than one database. Make your selection based on the coverage dates.

In the example below, the USMA Library carries Time in 3 databases, as well as print (coverage dates vary).
