Magazines and Newspapers

Articles published in newspapers and magazines can be particularly useful for contemporary accounts of events.   The following link will take you to a guide to the newspaper and magazine databases to which W&L subscribes:

Specialized Scholarly and Professional Databases

Mostly valuable for scholar, academic, and professional articles published within the past twenty or so years, although some older materials are available.

Getting an Article's Text

In many cases, an entry in one of our databases will direct you to the complete text of an article.

But what do you do when the text is not immediately available?  How do you know if we have access to an article?
