Resource Spotlight: Electronic Magazine Holdings

The tutorial above guides viewers in finding and accessing our online magazine holdings.

If you are looking for articles in a specific newspaper, magazine, or journal, use the BPL Electronic Magazine Holdings listing to find out which magazine databases provide coverage.

Simply type in the name of the newspaper, magazine, or journal you're looking for in the search box, and Electronic Magazine Holdings will display links to our databases containing the full text of the title and tell you the date ranges of full-text coverage.

You can then click onto one of the databases in the list to access the articles.

Expanded Academic ASAP, a database featuring magazine and journal articles, is also shown as an example within this tutorial.

Expanded Academic ASAP allows users to find articles by topic, relevance, or keyword. Other features of this database include the ability to narrow subjects by subdivision, limit results by date or to a specific publication, broaden the search to expanded subdivisions, or select only articles having full text.
