The catalog record will show if the journal is available online and will also show where in the library it can be found if available in print.

Library Trivia.  Do you know what this is?

It's library card catalog, which folks used to search for books and periodicals before the catalog was made available online.  You could search the cards by subject or author to find the library book or periodical you were looking for and then go find it on the shelves!

Periodical List

If the journal is online, the search results will show a database or a list of databases with years of publication that the journal is available.

The results will also provide links to the library's catalog that allow you to see if the journal is available in print and/or microform, and if so, where you can find it in the library.

The collection has scholarly journals on a variety of subjects, including science, math, art, geography, literature, music, history, and technology; trade publications that are specific to certain professions, such as education; and popular magazines, such as Time, Rolling Stone, and Sports Illustrated.
