These eight databases provide the best coverage of articles published in research journals in History:
The library also subscribes to several newspaper and magazine databases which may prove helpful. The Primary Source Databases research guide describes and links to these resources.
In most cases journal articles will be immediately available online. However, a database may sometimes describe an article but not actually include a copy. You can search for the title of a journal (not an article title) in the All eJournals A-Z directory to see if the journal is available in a different database. The library subscribes to over 200 databases, so it is usually worth checking.
You may also search the title of a journal in the library catalog to see if the library has a physical copy in the Periodicals Collection. The catalog will provide a call number and note the volumes and years owned by the library.
If any particular article is just entirely unavailable, submit an Interlibrary Loan request to obtain a copy from another library.
