How Do I Locate Print and Microform Journals Using The SIUE Catalog?

How do I determine if a journal is available in print, microfilm, or microfiche?

  • Use The SIUE Catalog.
  • Enter complete title of journal (excluding a, an, and the at the beginning) in the "Search" field.
  • Select "Journal/Magazine Title" from the "within" field.
  • Click the "Search" button to view the results.
  • If the Library owns the journal, determine the holdings, format, and location.

After I've checked the online catalog, how do I locate the actual journal?

  • Instructions are available for locating print, microfilm, and microfiche journals.

What if the journal is not available in this format?

  • If the Library does not own the journal in print, microfiche, or microfilm, check SFX to see if it is available in an electronic format.
  • If the Library does not own the journal in any format, use ILLiad to request the specific article through Interlibrary Loan (may take up to three weeks to receive material).
