There are three ways you can go about finding specific journal titles that the library has access to. First go to the Browse Journals page on the Sul Ross Library website.

1) For print journals you can do a ‘Periodical Title’ Search in WebCat, and type in the name of the journal you are looking for.

2) For print journals you can also look at the PHL (Periodicals Holdings List) which is not only online, but can be found in giant red binders located at the Information Desk, Circulation Desk, and on the second floor of the library next to the computer lab. The PHL lists all of the print journals that we currently have access to in alphabetical order including what issues and years we have, what format they are available in as well as what issues might be missing. Remember all physical journal titles are located on the 2nd floor of the library in alphabetical order.

3) To see if we have a specific journal article in any of our journal databases, go to the PEF (Periodicals in Electronic Format) list. This lists all of the Journal titles we have in electronic format as well as what databases they can be found in. To search for a specific title, go to ‘Advanced Title Search’. Since many journal titles have very similar names, be sure to select ‘Exact Match’ under Search Type.

Once you find your journal, there will be a list of databases in which that journal is available. Please be aware however that some databases may cover different issue years and that we may not have access to a specific year that you are looking for.
