Finding Electronic Journals & Newspapers

Posted by lrath on April 18, 2008

Have you ever wanted to read a specific journal or newspaper online and wondered which library database to use? Were you ever given a citation for a specific article, but you didn’t know how to locate it in one of the many library databases?

Follow these directions to determine whether Newman Library has access to a full-text journal/newspaper online:

  1. Go to the library’s homepage at: http://newman.baruch.cuny.edu
  2. Under “Search & Find”, click on the link that says “Journals, Magazines
  3. In the new page, scroll down until you see the question, “Do you need a specific journal?”. Click on the link that says “Full Text Journal
  4. In the new page, type in the name of the journal/newspaper in the search box.
  5. If the library has the journal in a database and you can access the full-text of the articles, the database will be listed. Click on the database name to connect. If you are off campus, you will be prompted to type in your Baruch username and password. Sometimes the journal/article is available in several databases. (Take note of the years each database covers.)
  6. If you get the message “0 records retrieved for the search”, your next step is to search the library’s catalog (CUNY+) to see if we have the journal in print.
