The Library Makes Exploring E-Journals Easy!

The library has thousands of full-text journals and newspapers that are available to the LBCC community from any web-enabled computer. Want to see what we have and link to them seamlessly? Just go to the library home page and click on “E-journal Title Search”

This link will take you to a portal that provides:

• An alphabetical list of the full-text digitized periodicals, newspapers, magazines and journals that the library can provide to LBCC students, staff and faculty through its many online databases

• An alphabetical list of, and links to, all these online, full-text databases (such as ProQuest) available from the library that contain these journal and newspaper articles

• A display of these e-journals grouped according to the subject area that they fall within (note: these are broad subjects --health, education, the arts, etc.—that are the focus of the particular journal; to get articles about a specific subject (like “mitral valve prolapse” or “carbon footprint”) choose one of the databases above and enter your subject

Typical questions that these links can answer:
  • I found a reference to an article I need in an April, 1997 issue of Business Week—can I get that issue online through the library?
  • I’d like to browse some psychology journals to get ideas for a paper. I need to do that at
    home, so what psych journals does the library have online?
  • I am researching an event that happened in Boston in 2001? Does LBCC Library have the
    Boston Globe online for that year? In what database?

For more tips, ask a librarian at the Library’s reference desk.
