Where Is “Find A Journal?”

The answer is, it’s now on the Library’s homepage, and right in the middle of our brand new search box (thank you David)! There’s no need to click anywhere – there it is, just type away, hit go, and you’ll find out whether the journal you want is in print, online or both. In the example below we’ve typed the popular “Child Development.”

The results are as follows: four databases, and print holdings from 2005 to the present (i.e., we have this journal in back of the Library on the right-hand side). The better options are the three EBSCO databases (Academic Search Premiere, Education Research Complete, and Professional Development Collection) which do indeed start at 1930 but as is the case with most databases there’s a 12 month embargo. This means you have to wait a year before the full-text of a recent article is available for download. If you want to read the very latest issue you’ll have to locate the print edition.

Results for A-Z Child Development

It’s hard to believe but true, EBSCO’s databases do in fact  go back to 1930 for “Child Development.” And to prove it, below is the record for the first “Child Development” article.

Rice, C. (1930). Excellence of Production and Types of Movements in Drawing. Child Development, 1(1), 1. Retrieved from EBSCOhost.
