Journals List: Do We Have this Journal?
When you have a source with a bibliography, you can see if a particular article from the bibliography is available by looking the journal's name up at the link below. Then you can use the volume and date information to navigate to the article. If we don't have access to that journal, we usually can get it from another library.

In addition to journals for historians, the library has many popular magazines from the 19th and 20th centuries that can be used as primary sources. An index to them, the Reader's Guide to Periodicals, is available in the reference collection. Feel free to ask a librarian for help.
