Question: How do I search the library’s catalog to find a book or video?
Answer: Finding a book or video in the library can seem difficult. Check-out the library’s tip sheet on how to find a book or watch our video tutorial Print Resources: How to Find Books, Videos, Magazines, and Other Materials within Magale Library.
Question: How do I search for online articles?
Answer: The library subscribes to many online databases that contain thousands of full-text articles. While not all articles are full-text in the databases, most are. A great place to begin searching for articles is by using the “Quick Search Electronic Collections” tool (located at the top-right of this page) which are divided by content areas. For best results, always select the “Full-text articles only” option before searching. If only scholarly or peer-reviewed resources are needed, also select the “Peer-reviewed articles only” option prior to search.
Another way of finding online articles is by searching databases directly. You may search for full-text articles using the databases located on the library’s webpage, Databases By Title.

Question: How do I search to see if the library subscribes to a specific full-text online journal?
Answer: You may begin by using Magale’s A to Z List located on the library’s webpage, E-Journals By Title. The A to Z list allows you to search for journals by title or subject area. If the journal is available full-text, the name of the Magale Library electronic database or digital library will be listed.
