Using the name of the journal, you can search in our catalog from the library home page. Click on the white "Catalog" tab near the top of the page. Select "Journal Title" from the drop-down menu next to the search box. Enter the title in the search box. Look at the individual catalog records to see which issues we have and whether they are in paper, microfilm, or electronic copies. The catalog records include direct links to the databases with electronic editions of a journal.
You can also search for journals by title using the "Journals By Title" tab near the top of the library home page. Choose the description for your search words (title begins with, exact title, title includes) from the drop-down menu and enter your search words in the box. The results list will show the databases and coverage dates for the journal and a link to "Sacred Heart University's Print Holdings" for the catalog record of those which are available in paper or microfilm formats.
CAUTION: Double check the title of the journal you want for complete and accurate spelling. Computer searches may not recognize abbreviations, other names or spellings of journal titles.
