Databases and Journals

Find journal, magazine, and newspaper articles by searching one or more of the CSU Library's databases and indexes. Some databases include the fulltext of the article, others list only the citation, or the citation plus abstract. Some databases, like Britannica Online or Oxford English Dictionary are electronic resources but do not index journal articles at all.

Databases by Title   If you know the database you wish to use, select it from the alphabetical title list.

Databases by Subject   If you need help selecting a database, use the subject list

Journals by Title   If you already have a journal title or citation, either from an outside source or from a database which does not have the fulltext of the article, use the Journals by Title service to find out whether the CSU Library subscribes to the journal in print, microform, or electronic format. Hint: If you are using a database which does not have the fulltext of the article you need, open Journals by Title in a new browser window or tab so you can easily switch between the page with the citation and the page which will help you locate the journal

Request an Article   If the CSU Library does not have a journal article you need, you may request a copy through InterLibrary Loan. Or, you may prefer to search the catalogs of other area libraries and visit them to locate materials you need
