Tracking a Topic in a Journal
The easiest method for tracking a topic over time in one specific journal is to find the online version of the publication in one of the library databases and use the search function to search the journal for your topic. This takes a few steps:
  1. Search for the journal title in our Library Catalog.
  2. Select the result labeled [electronic resource].
  3. Select a link for the journal that includes the years you need to review (sometimes you might have to visit multiple databases to get all the years you need).
  4. At the journal's main page, use the search bar to find articles on your topic. Be sure to use effective keyword searching techniques!
Finding Print Journals
The fastest way to determine whether the library owns a journal in print is to search for the journal title in the Library Catalog. If the library owns the journal, use the call number from the item record to track the issues down on the 4th floor.
