Do I abandon my search?

Sometimes the database will give you information about an article that will work for your project--but it isn't full text. Don't give up hope! To look further for full text, click on Search for journal.

To see if a journal or magazine is available online or in the Beam Library, use Journal Finder, which is also linked from the library's home page under Find Articles. Use Journal Finder to determine:

  • Is the journal available online?
  • Is the journal in the Beam Library?
  • If the material is not available online or in the library you may request the item through the interlibrary loan.
  • Even if Beam Library doesn't have the periodical, there is still a good chance you can get the article. If you are interested, check out the Library's interlibrary loan service.
