Online Research: How do I find a certain magazine?

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Last week we started talking about using the BadgerLink website to find the right resource. Read last week's article: What resource should I use? Today we are covering how to look for a specific newspaper, magazine, or journal.

Our go-to starting point for online research is the BadgerLink website! The purpose of the BadgerLink website is to get you to the resource you want to search. Then when you search a resource, you will find articles. When you click on Magazines, under Format, you aren’t being directed to a page where you will find a list of magazines. You’re, instead, directed to a list of our resources that have magazine content.

The next question is often, which resource will have an article from a certain magazine. The answer can be surprisingly tricky. We created a resource called Popular Magazines that links to magazines from MasterFILE Premier. Learn how to use Popular Magazines and MasterFILE Premier to search for magazines in our short video. 

If you've checked Popular Magazines and MasterFILE Premier and can't find what you're looking for, we created a second video that walks you through searching multiple resources at the same time.
