Can I use LibrarySearch to find articles in a specific journal?

Yes!  LibrarySearch makes it easy to search within a specific e-journal – either by 1) Searching for topics across all available issues, or 2) By browsing through years, volumes, issues.

1.  Search within the journal

  • First find the journal by its title
  • Look for the SEARCH INSIDE link on the left side of the journal's catalogue record.
  • This brings you to an area where you can enter keywords.
  • This example shows searching for the keyword covid-19 in the online version of Chronicle of Higher Education

2.  Browse through the journal by years, volumes, issues

  • Notice that there is a section showing FULL TEXT AVAILABILITY
  • You must be signed in to get to the fulltext articles.
  • This shows that we get content from 1999 – the previous month from the vendor, Education Source.
  • Clicking on the link for Education Source will take you to a browseable list of the journals in descending date order.
