If you are searching for articles in a particular publication, you can use Journal Finder, also called TDNet, to find out which library databases contain that publication.

You can access the journal finder from the Library tab in Blackboard under Research | Explore, or use the links above.

Once you're there:

  1. Search for the title of the journal or browse by letter.

  2. Each of the results can be expanded to show which databases carry the journal and what dates each database has access to

  3. Click on the name of the database you wish to use to access the journal. Remember, you will need to be signed into Blackboard to access the databases. You can then browse by issue, or search for keywords.

    Below are examples of the same journal (The New York Times) in two different databases (ProQuest and Gale). If the databases offer the same date coverage - then it is a matter of preference which database you use.
