ELECTRONIC INDEXES

 
   

Databases of electronic indexes let you find information in Books, Videos, and Journal Articles (many full-text).
For Videos, you can view and link these to your presentations or reports

 
  For Journal Articles, keep in mind that for each different Journal, Magazine, or Newspaper, coverage might vary. For example, dates of articles indexed for one journal might start with 1998 while for another it might be 2009. Also while some cover To Present, other journals have an "embargo." This "embargo" might be anywhere from 3, 6, 12 months, or more, depending on Publisher's restrictions. For these "embargo" journals, the only way you can get the full-text of their most recent articles is from the printed issue and not from an electronic database.
 
 
 

In a Database,click on      to get coverage dates and embargo information for any of their titles.

 
The LRC subscribes to some of the printed Journals and receives current issues for these. For information on Journals, Magazines, and Newspapers in the library shelves, check e-Library or The Serials Holdings List.
