Using the Journal Index
The Journal Index lets you search for specific journals, magazines and periodicals, as well as browse by subject or database. To access the index:
- Start on the Library homepage
- Click on Journal Index (also known as publication finder or full-text finder)
- If you are not already logged in, log in with your Sullivan username and password
Search for Specific Journals, Magazines, and EBSCO ebooks
- Click in the search box and enter the journal title
On the results page, each journal title will have a list of databases under it that will let you access that journal's content and the dates when that content appeared.
Choose a database based on when the information you are looking for was published, ex. look for databases with the label "1994-Present" for current issues.
- Example: Newsweek (U.S. Ed.) is available through several databases, but only Gale In Context gives you access to current issues (present).
- When you click the database name you will be redirected to the journal.
Drop-Downs above Search Box
There are two drop-down options above the main search box. The first option defaults to Title searching but you can instead search by Subject, ISSN/ISBN, or Publisher. The other drop down lets you limit the search by clicking "Contains" and changing the search type to Exact Match, Begins With, Proximity, or Exact Phrase.
