Search these specialized bibliographic databases to find journal articles

  • This database includes full-text journals, criticism and reference resources covering literary and linguistic study.

  • JSTOR provides access to full-text, full-image, scholarly literature. Content dates from the first issue of a journal to approximately 5 years ago, so JSTOR is not a source for the most current articles.
  • ProQuest Arts and Humanities
    This search engine searches across 19 databases related to the Arts & Humanities.
  • Periodicals Archive Online
    Periodicals Archive Online provides full text access to hundreds of digitized British and European journals published in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Newest material is 5 years old.
