How do I find journal articles?

The easiest way to find journal articles is to use Library Databases (from the Library Homepage click on Databases by Title or Databases by Subject under SEARCH COLLECTIONS.)  Here are a few recommended General Topic databases:

Academic Search Complete (EBSCO)
Proquest Research Library
General OneFile (Gale)

If you are looking for articles on a Specific Subject, for example: Nursing, Criminal Justice or Literature, click on Databases by Subject and select from the drop-down list at the top of the page then click on "Apply."  Now you have a list of subject databases from which to select.

Remember, if you are off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your student ID and password in order to access the databases.

The JCC Libraries also subscribe to many journals and magazines in print.  You can find 12 months of issues in the Current Periodicals shelves in the library.  For journals and magazines older that one year, look in the Back Periodicals shelves.

The "Introduction to Research" Libguide (link below) will help you to focus your topic and contains tips on searching the databases for articles.  There are other Libguides (research guides created by the JCC Librarians) containing resources and research help on many different subjects.
