If you know the exact citation, use SearchBox on the library's homepage to determine whether the library has the full text. Type the title of the article in quotation marks in the SearchBox on the library's homepage and click on search.

To find out which database has the full text of a particular journal title, go to the library's homepage, on the left under RESEARCH, click on FIND JOURNALS. In the search box, type in the name of the journal (not the title of the article) and click on search.  For example, FOREIGN AFFAIRS is available in multiple databases. (Always look at the available dates to determine whether the article you need is included.)  The database will be set up to search for Foreign Affairs.

Recent issues of many world newspapers can be read on the database Newspaper Direct Press Display.  For more information on newpapers, click the link below.
