Find articles


See the Library's comprehensive guide:

Search the Library

Use the keyword search box (at the left) to find books in both print and electronic formats, and articles in newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals.  If you don't get enough relevant results, try different search terms. 

Search tips:

  • Use quotation marks for terms comprised of more than one word, such as 'body image'.
  • Use a truncation symbol to search for variations of the same word.  For example, Canad* retrieves Canada, Canada's, Canadian, Canadians, Canadien, Canadiennes.
  • Use the limiters at the left of your search results to narrow results by content type, subject, and/or date.


Brief but Useful Info

Magazines for Libraries provides short descriptons of thousands of magazines.  Entries are organized by subject category, so you will need to use the title index to find the information for your magazine.  Annotations are by subject specialists, and include such details as: editorial policy, target audience, distribution, and types of advertisements.
