Introduction to Journal Finder
Looking for the full-text of a journal, magazine, or newspaper title?
Journal Finder searches over 26,000 full-text journal, magazine or newspaper titles available to LVC staff, faculty and students. A successful search in Journal Finder provides you with the dates full-text is available for your journal title, as well as a direct link to the full-text journal.
Journal Finder will also provide you with a link to the journal record in our library catalog, if Bishop Library physically owns the journal. While the physical journals that LVC owns may be found in the Bishop catalog, full-text journals are not available in the Bishop catalog.
Consider also the Browse by Title feature. This allows you to browse all of the full-text journal titles available, and focus quickly upon a journal title if you’re unsure of the exact title.
Additionally, all of the full-text database or journal packages that LVC subscribes to may be viewed on the bottom part of the Journal Finder search page. From these links, one could connect to the databases/journals containing full-text, and search for a particular topic.
Journal Finder, however, is best used to locate the full-text of a journal.
Looking for the full-text of an article?
Journal Finder can link you to the full-text of an article citation. Searching for a specific citation with Journal Finder is the most efficient way to track down full-text, since it’s searching through all of LVC’s full-text databases with just one search.
Looking for subject specific full-text journals?
Journal Finder’s Browse by Subject option allows one to browse the full-text journals by subject.
