3. Click on the Search button and you will get a page with a list of results that include your journal title. Select the correct title for your desired journal.  An item record will appear that will include links to databases which provide access to the journal, and an indication of the date ranges each database contains for that journal. See image below:

4. Click the link for the database which has the date range you need. What occurs next will depend on the database, but you should be taken either to a home page for the journal (where you can browse or search articles), or an advanced search that already includes the journal title. You can also re-type the journal title into an advanced search.

NOTE: In some cases, we may not have the dates you need in an online database, but we may have print copies of your journal which do have the dates you need. In the image below, the list of results reveal that the journal is "Available at Doheny Memorial Library." Clicking that link will take you to the item record for your journal, and that record will indicate the date range we have in print and which libraries those issues are located in.
