Searching for Print Journals

If you come across articles that are not available in full text via Get It! or in the database that you are searching, you can check to see if the library has a print copy of the journal which contains the article you are seeking.  To conduct a search for a journal, note the journal's title, year, volume, and issue.  Then, head to the library catalog, DELCAT, and search for the journal by title.  (ex:  International Journal of Educational Research).  

When you have located the record for the journal that you are seeking, click "holdings" to see if we have the journal for the year in which the article you are seeking was published.  If you need help with this process, please ask for help at the reference desk or by using our Ask A Librarian services.
