Search Journals by Title

If you have the title of a particular journal, enter the journal title in the Library Catalog to see if it's in our collections. 


Search OneSearch for books, media, articles, primary sources, newspapers, journals, and more. Selecting CSU+ will allow you to search across all CSU libraries and request items we don't have.

If it is available online, you'll find a link to the appropriate online resource.

If it is available in print, you'll see the list of issues, which you can retrieve in the SSU Library. 

Back issues of print journals may be in the Automated Retrieval System. If you come across the Click to Request button, click on it, type your last name, and submit. The item will be available for pick-up at the Information/Check-Out Desk on the second floor, usually within about 15 minutes. 

Search Journals by Topic

The Library subscribes to around 35,000 journals, mostly online. (SSU students, faculty and staff only)

If you know your topic, but are not sure which journal has an article on that topic, you'll want to use the Library's research databases and full-text journal collections.
