Journals, Magazines, Newspapers

There are two ways to locate journals, magazines, and newspapers by title:

Using the Online Journal Portal

Use the Online Journal Portal to determine if the journal, magazine, or newspaper is available online.  (View a brief video tutorial.)

To find an online journal, magazine, or newsapaper by title, enter the title and click Search. You may also browse by title or subject. 

In the results list, note the dates available (i.e., 05/01/1990-present) and click on the database link (i.e., Academic Search Premier) for access.

Using MINERVA

Use MINERVA to determine if the journal, magazine, or newspaper is available in print or on microfilm.

On the MINERVA search screen, for Type of search, choose Title. Enter the name of the journal, magazine, or newspaper in the Enter search terms box. For Select Library, choose St. Joseph's College. Click Go.

The record for the journal, magazine, or newspaper looks like this:  

Location:

St. Joseph's Periodicals - the library has this title in print in the periodical collection
St. Joseph's Microform - the library has this title in microfilm

LIB. HAS:

indicates the volumes/years the library has

Latest Received:

Some journals, magazines, and newspapers are kept for a limited amount of time in print. For example, if LIB. HAS indicates

Current year - the library keeps only the current calendar year
Current issue + 6 months - the library keeps the current issue and 6 months before that issue
