Looking for E-Journals?

Search Strategies

Electronic Journals have distinct records, separate from those for the paper editions, in the CLIO catalog. You can limit your search to include only electronic journals in two ways.

Quick Limits (used on Basic search screen only):

Bullet  On the Basic search screen, click on electronic journals/newspapers from the Quick Limit menu (below the "search for" box)
Bullet  Enter your search terms and then select either Journal Title or Keyword search from the search options list.


Pre-set Limits (may be used on Basic or Guided Keyword search screens):

Bullet  Click on the Pre-set Limits icon.
Bullet  Go to Medium menu and click on electronic resources.
Bullet  Go to Format menu and click on serials.
Bullet  Click on Set Limits button at the bottom of the screen.
Bullet  Enter your search terms and then select a Journal Title or Keyword search on the Basic search screen or Keywords in Title or Keywords Anywhere on the Guided Keyword search screen.

Alternative Search Options

The records for many e-journals in CLIO include the words "online" or "electronic resource." You may search these by adding these terms to your keyword search.


Bullet  newsweek  online
Bullet newsweek "electronic resource"

If you know the name of the publisher of a collection of e-journals, add the publisher's name as a term in a keyword search.
