Databases, listed on the right, will lead you to peer-reviewed journals, specific to research on course-relevant topics.  Please note that articles published in peer-reviewed journals are reviewed by experts and rigorously vetted before publication. Popular magazines, such as the ones found on magazine racks of large booksellers or published on Google, are not peer-reviewed. 

Access to peer-reviewed materials is possible only through academic affiliation, i.e.,undergraduates, graduates, and faculty.

ProQuest Central and Academic Search Complete provide access to non-scholarly sources, such as newspaper and magazine articles, as well as scholarly sources.



Journal Locator allows you to search for an individual journal to see the library's holdings in all databases and print collections.  You can access it via the Get Article link or you can use the link here to check the library's holdings for a journal.
