Periodical Databases

Databases include the citations of articles in magazines, journals and newspapers.

Some periodical databases contain abstracts or brief summaries of the articles. Many contain the full text (entire content) of articles as they originally appeared in the periodical.

Periodical databases, purchased by Harvey Library, are accessible from the library's homepage. The library also owns some print indexes for researching older materials. For example, the New York Times print index goes back to 1851!
