Try our study guide Finding Periodical Articles.
Why use periodical articles?
Periodicals cover events more quickly and concisely than books
Books are usually better at giving thoughtful, historical information. Magazines and newspapers provide current, focused information, and specialized magazines and journals provide in-depth coverage.
Periodical articles are usually on specific topics
Many topics do not have entire books written about them (or the specific information you need is buried within a book).
Although many articles you seek are probably found in the resources listed below, you may want to start with the all-in-one search box in the middle of the Library Home Page which is also on this page.
