Q. How do I know if a journal or newspaper is available online from USF's libraries?
Gleeson Library's Journal Finder tool is particularly useful when you need to find out whether a non-legal journal, magazine, or newspaper is available in full-text in an online resource.
Enter the title of the journal, magazine, or newspaper that you want to find. The Journal Finder will show you whether the title is available at USF in print or online.
The Journal Finder does not contain information about whether a particular periodical is available on Lexis or Westlaw, but it will tell you if a journal is available in HeinOnline.
If you're trying to find out if a journal or newspaper is on Lexis or Westlaw, it's best to ask one of the Zief research librarians, or check the available sources on Lexis or Westlaw. On Lexis, type the title of the journal you need in the single search box on the home screen. If the journal is available, you'll see the title (as a link) in the "Sources" pull-down menu below the search box. On Westlaw, browse the Law Reviews & Journals source.
You can also enter the title of the journal, magazine or newspaper in the USF library catalog, Ignacio. Remember that you'll need to enter the journal or newspaper title rather than the title of the article that you're trying to find. If the periodical is available online, Ignacio will have a links to any online sources — other than Lexis or Westlaw — that contain the periodical.
