Finding Journal Articles

Individual journal articles are not indexed in library catalogs. In order to find individual articles within specific journals you will need to turn to an index, either in print or online.  An index (also referred to as a database) may be searched using the same subject headings and keywords you used in library catalogs.  Citations found in indexes will include the author & title of the article, the journal name (sometimes abbreviated), volume, issue or month published, and page numbers.  Once you determine the title of the journal, you may then use CONSORT and OhioLINK to find the location of the journal itself (many volumes of bound journals circulate in OhioLINK, so do not skip this step). If we do not have the journal at Kenyon and it is not available to borrow from OhioLINK, simply fill out an Interlibrary loan request form. The following History-specific and general indexes are great places to begin searching for articles.
