Find a Journal in Full Text Online

If you know which journal an article is in you can check to see if we have access to the full text of the article online. Search the journal title in the eJournal Finder to get links to available sources for the full text.

Find Print Journals

Not everything is online!  Some journals do not have online versions, and even for journals that do, articles from around 1995 and earlier may not be in digital format. For articles you identify in your database searches that are not available full-text online, search for the journal title in the search box below to see if the journal in which your article appears is in our print journal collection on Floor 2M.

Interlibrary Loan

If the Wheelock Library doesn't have the articles you are looking for, we can get them for you free of charge. Requests may be submitted via the ILL Article Request Form.

Database Access

If you are having trouble accessing the databases from an off-site location, see our Database Access page for help.
