Find Articles by Journal Title
If you know the name of the journal you want to search, use the Journal Title Search to see if it is available in print or online from the library.
Example to try:
- Scientific American Mind
- Discover Magazine
Search for academic articles on publisher and other websites. When you use this link to connect to Google Scholar through the Library, your search results will include links to articles available in Normandale Library databases whenever possible. Look for the "Article @ Normandale Lib." links to access the full article through the Library.
Note: Not all articles in your search results will be available through the Library. Need an article we don’t have? Submit an interlibrary loan request.
