About Articles

  • "Articles" come from newspapers, magazines, or journals (collectively called periodicals)

  • Some periodicals are available in print, but they are often licensed for electronic format too
  • Articles are found by searching finding aids called article indexes
  • An index lets you search by keyword for articles on your research topic
