Answer

You may be able to find older periodicals in print at the libraries, or digitally through the library databases.  Here are a couple of ways to do this:

  • Click on the Journals tab in the Quick Search box at the top of the JCC Library home page.
  • Click on the "Search for Journals" button to open the JCC Libraries' Journal List page.
  • Search by title to see if a journal is available through the JCC Library databases or in the Print Periodicals collection. 
  • Results will indicate the range of dates that are available.
  • If you have a full or partial citation for an article click on "LinkSource Citation Finder" from the menu bar and enter as much information as you can.

You can also search by "Words in Title" or "Title Begins With..." in the Library Catalog (from the JCC Library home page, click on "Search for Books.")  If the journal is listed in your results, click on the title to see which issues are available.  Some issues may only be available on microform (microfilm or microfiche).  There is a special microform viewer in the Hultquist Library - ask a librarian to help you with this, it can be tricky!

If you can't find the periodical through the JCC Libraries' Journal List page, or the Library Catalog, you can try sending for the article by entering the citation in a Interlibrary Loan form (link below.)
