Search journals online

by Pat Martin, head of Periodical Services


While working on your presentations and research, you have probably used EBSCOhost to look for periodical articles. EBSCOhost is one of many online databases, available at the HPU libraries, which allows you to retrieve relevant articles or abstracts (summaries) of articles. Databases are great for all kinds of searches, including finding articles by keywords, titles, authors, and subjects.

Another great resource is the University Libraries Periodical List (ULPL). By using the Periodical List you can quickly browse the latest issue of your favorite journal, or see periodical titles by subject available at HPU in all formats, including print, microform, and online. In addition to providing an alphabetical listing of all full-text periodicals available to HPU students, faculty, and staff, the Periodical List offers a way of searching periodical titles by subject, title, or ISSN (International Standard Serial Number).

To access the list:

(1) Go to the Libraries tab (page) in Campus Pipeline. Go to the left column under “Research Tools” and click “ULPL (University Libraries Periodical List).”

(2) Click any letter to access title and subject search menu.

(3) For a title/ISSN search, click “Title begins with,” and enter the desired title information in the search box.

(4) For a subject search, select the broad subject from the drop-down menu and click “Search.”

(5) Broad subjects are divided into specific subjects. Click the specific subject. Don’t give up if you don’t see your subject. Some specific subjects are placed under unlikely broad subjects. For example, “Communications” is under “Technology and Applied Sciences.” Approximately 700 subject headings from Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory are used.

(6) Titles with holdings and locations are listed, including print, microfiche, microfilm, and online (from databases available at HPU libraries). Electronic titles link to full text (accessible on campus only).

Good luck with your searching, and remember: The helpful librarians at Meader and Atherton Libraries are always here to give you a hand!!
