Since Bloomberg access is restricted to campus, professors have removed Bloomberg requirements from the coursework for the remainder of the semester.

I'm looking for a specific journal. How do I find it?

From the Turchin Library homepage, enter the title of the journal in the search box in the middle of the page. Select 'journals' in drop-down menu to the left.

From the results list, select the journal that indicates 'online access.' The catalog record will indicate which databases hold the title, including which years, volumes, and issues are available.

This search also works within the Journal page under Popular Resources, or by selecting Catalog and then choosing Journal Title from the drop down menu.

For additional information, visit the library's A-Z List of journal titles. Users can also use the Browzine database to browse scholarly journals by subject or title.
