Cuisines and Cultures of the Mediterranean (CULA-311): Finding Articles

Articles in Magazines & Journals

Periodicals are any published materials that come out periodically, that is on a regular basis, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.  These include newspapers, magazines, trade and professional journals, and scholarly research journals.

The articles in periodicals can be located by searching online Databases that are subscribed to by the Library. Many of these databases include the full-text of articles. 

If our Library does not have an article you are looking for, we can get it for you thru Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  We will email the digital copy (pdf) of the article to you directly.  ILL is a FREE service for all currently enrolled students, faculty and staff.
