There are two ways to find a specific periodical:

Option 1: Go to the library website. Under "Research Toolkit", click "Journals." In the search box, type in the title of the journal, magazine, newspaper, or other periodical. Click the Search button. If Salem has full-text access to the title, the electronic record will display on the right side of the screen. Click the journal title. From there, you can search within the publication or narrow your search by volume, issue, or publication date.

Option 2: You can also find a periodical using the online catalog on the home page of the library website. In the search bar, type in the periodical title and use quotations (ex: "Harvard Business Review"). Click the Search button. In the Library filter on the left, click "Salem Libraries." If Salem has access to the periodical, the title should appear at the top of the results list. If the periodical is available in print, the location, the call number, and the volume/issue information will be listed.
