Periodical Databases

Databases include the citations of articles in magazines, journals and newspapers.

Some periodical databases contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles. Many contain the full text (entire content) of articles.

Periodical databases are accessible from the Good Library homepage. The library also owns some print indexes, good for researching older materials. For example, the New York Times print index goes back to 1851!
