Search or browsing within a Journal

1. To search or browse within a specific journal, you need to know the journal name.

What if you just have an acronym? 

Try looking it up in one of these sources to identify the full name of the journal.

If none of these methods work try Google or ask your librarian (contact information on the left)

2. From the Library homepage, select the LibrarySearch Advanced Search option, select the Title search field, enter the full journal title, then select Journals from the list of Format drop down menu.
