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 newspaper by title, enter the title and click "Search". You may also browse by title or subject. 

Journals1

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.

Journals2

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:

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