Find a Journal by Title

I need articles from Journal X. What do I do?

We frequently hear this question in the library. It is easy to find a journal by its title; you just need to use our journal finder (for print & online journals) or the library's classic catalog (for print journals). Just remember, not every title is available online at Canisius, so you may need to Interlibrary loan (ILL) your article. Here are the quick steps to find an online journal:

  • Click on journals by title, the link is located at the bottom of the library home page and under the “Search & Find” tab.
  • Type in the name of the journal, magazine or periodical you are looking for, select “Journals Only”, click search.
  • Look at the database links that appear under the title you searched for the date range you need.
  • Click on the database link you need

For more detailed instructions and steps to find a print title, follow the steps on this guide's tabs. If you need additional help, please stop by the reference desk, call us at 716-888-8411, email ( or check out our other help guides.

Adapted Paintings : New Works by A.J. Fries

Join us Friday, October 28, from 5-7pm in the Vogt Gallery on the first floor of the library for the opening reception of Adapted Paintings: New Works by A.J. Fries.

A.J. Fries is a painter who was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. A graduate of the State University of New York College at Buffalo, he has been called “unquestionably one of WNY’s most serious, developed, and dedicated artists” by Scott Propeack, associate director of the Burchfield Penney Art Center.

Fries has exhibited in Buffalo at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo Arts Studio, Hallwalls, and Big Orbit Gallery, among others. His work is included in many public and private collections, including those of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Burchfield Penney. In 2001 he was awarded a 3-month residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York, and in 2007 he received a full fellowship for a month-long residency at the Vermont Studio Center. He is a founding member of Trans Empire Canal Corporation (TECC), a Buffalo-based collective responsible for the Burchfield Penney Art Center’s 2014 multi-year project “Cultural Commodities: As Exhibition in Four Phases,” informally referred to as the “art barge.”

Fries was designated one of the Burchfield Penney’s first “Living Legacy” artists in 2012.
