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
