    Tracking Down Past Periodical Articles

    Discussion in 'Research' started by shamrock838, Oct 30, 2009.

    Tracking Down Past Periodical Articles:

    Suppose I need to photocopy a dated magazine article but the local library doesn’t carry the periodical.

    What are my online options please?

    Thanks.

    This is the database from my school. Yours should have something similar I would think.

    There are online databases like JSTOR, which archive back issues of thousands of different periodicals, but unless you are at a university or something, you'll have to pay for access, and I don't know how much it is.

    I just googled your city, and the public library in your city has something called POWER library which gives you online access to the full text of periodical articles. Talk to the reference librarian in your library for help with it.

    coulda sworn i'd answered your question already... did you post it on some other writing site?

    anyway, have you googled for the magazine?... if it's available online, you can probably find the article in their archives... if not, you can google for masthead info for it, then call the magazine and ask them to send you that copy...
