This search will show you if a particular periodical title (journal, magazine, newspaper) is part of the library's print periodical collection, or is available full text in one of our online databases.
This is a sample Journal Finder result for the Journal of Advanced Nursing:
- "USF Print and Online Journal Holdings," indicates that this title is part of our print periodical collection. Click the link to see which issues we own.
- The second entry indicates that the database called CINAHL Plus with Full Text has the full text of this title online from 1981 to the 1 year ago. This means that the current issues from today to 1 year ago will not be available, but everything from 1 year ago back to 1981 will be available. If the date of your article falls within this range, then click the link to go to the database, and then do a search for the particular article you are looking for.
- The third entry indicates that the database called Blackwell-Synergy has the full text of this title online from 1997 to the present, and so it should include all current issues.
- If there are no results for the periodical title you are looking for, you can make an interlibrary loan request, and we'll get a copy of the article for you (students and faculty from our branch campuses only please use the Document Delivery resource instead of interlibrary loan).
Or, check to see if another library carries the journal so you can go and make a copy yourself.
Be aware that occasionally a full text link will fail to work, or a database may fail to have the full text that the search results indicate. If you find one of these problems, please let us know so that we can bring it to the attention of the appropriate vendor.
