Finding Journal Articles

Use journal and newspaper indexes and databases to discover articles on your topic. Some online databases include full-text articles or the icon which may lead you to the full text elsewhere. In many cases, however, you will need to locate the print journal in the Library's collections; search Melvyl by the journal title in order to find the shelving location and call number for the journal. For UCB Only or UC Only titles go to The Library's home page →Find Information →Articles.
