Getting Your Hands on Periodical, Newspaper, and Journal Articles


o   Important Feature Embedded in Library Databases!!  Find It at SLU 

This icon is embedded within most database search results (some databases still use text links only).  It represents the feature known as Article Linker.  Click on it to determine the best available path to the periodical content. It will link you to (Step 1) the full-text of the article in another database (if available), as well as (Step 2) the SLU Libraries Catalog record for the publication (so you can see if the Library owns a print or microfilm copy).

If you're not in a database but are working from an existing reference list, click on the "E-Journal" tab on the SLU Libraries home page to check the full-text availability of specific journals via the E-Journal Portal




    • Perform a “Journal Title” search in the SLU Libraries Catalog to see if Pius Library subscribes in print or microform formats (sometimes—but not always—you’ll see links to online full-text as well).  You’ll especially need to do this if you’re working from an existing reference list (and not from within a database search).
