How to find journals

  • Enter the title or search terms you are looking for in the search box on the UW Libraries homepage.
  • Filter your results by selecting "Journals" under the Resource Type options on the left.

  • Click "More options" under Resource Type to find "Journals." 
  • Check the box next to "Journals" in the "Include" column and click "Continue." 


  • Look for the "Journal" label in the left hand column of your results. The colored dot indicates whether it is electronic journal (online access) or a print journal (availability and location information). 


Online Journals

  • Click "Access Options" for more information.
  • Click on the link next to "Content available" to access the electronic journal. In this case, there are three different ways you could access this journal.
  • For each access point, also note the dates of coverage to determine whether the volume or article you are looking for is included in the UW's subscription to the journal.

Print Journals

  • To see more information, click on the "Availability & Request Options" tab. This includes information on whether the item is available for checkout and where it can be found in the library.
  • See the "description" dropdown to see which volumes of the journal are held by UW. In this case, we can see that we have 9 print volumes of this particular journal.
