Online index and full-text database search and results screens vary. Basic searches are typically by keyword or phrases while advanced searches usually allow boolean (and/or/not) keyword, author, title, and subject queries along with limits by year. Results may be typically printed or emailed. For citations a record of the author, title of article, name of journal, date, volume number, and page numbers will be required to obtain the actual article in print or via ILL.
Find a Journal
Search the Cressman Library WorldCat Local for the title of the journal. Select "Advanced Search" and for "Format" select: Journal, magazine. Type the name of the journal in the "Title" box, click on "Search." Click on the journal title for holdings information. Or, from the Cressman Library select E-journals & Periodicals.
