Journals with Case Studies

How do I access journals?

Print: Current issues (roughly the most current 12 months) are in "The Pit" on the first floor. Older issues are located in the third floor Bound Journals section (compact, movable stacks). Both sections are organized alphabetically. To access an aisle in the Bound Journals section, check for patrons in the aisles, then rotate the crank on the movable stack next to the aisle you need to access.

Online: Search for a journal by name in the library Quick Search, or access the links below. Click on the Find It button on the journals' record to check for online access. If access is available, you will see a link(s) to a database as well as the available date range. Make sure you select one with the right date range for your needs. (e.g., 1990 through present). Most databases will give you the option to either search within the publication (using keywords), or to browse specific issues (listed by year/month, volume, or issue).
