E-Journal Finder: What is it?

E-Journal Finder:  What is it?

The library’s database collection provides access to tens of thousands of digital magazines, newspapers and journals.

The library’s e-journal finder is a master list of all these thousands of magazines, newspapers and journals housed within the library’s database collection.

Use the e-journal finder to determine if the library’s databases provide access to titles such as: the Concord Monitor, American Fern Journal or Western Folklore.

The e-journal finder will not only identify if and where particular titles can be found, it will also link to that same title as housed within the associated database(s).
