How can I find out if the Library has the journal, magazine or newspaper that I need?

The easiest way to find out if the Library subscribes to a certain periodical (magazine, journal, newspaper, etc.) is to search the Journals A-Z List, from the Library homepage.

Enter all, or part, of the periodical name and search.  You may get more results than you expect, but look over the list carefully to see if any match your search.  

If so, you'll see one or more options for accessing the full-text, with a range of dates next to each.  Check the dates carefully to make sure you choose the right option, and click on the link to the right.  Most links will take you to an online database where you can find full-text, although some choices (WPUNJ Print, WPUNJ Fiche, WPUNJ Film) are only available in the library.

If you do not see the periodical that you're searching for, it means that the Library does not have a subscription.  Contact the Reference Desk (973-720-2116 or to find out what other options you may have.
