Find Journals by Title

You can see if Tutt Library subscribes to a journal by searching Find Journals. If the title you're looking for is available online in one of our databases, you'll be able to search within it to find articles. 

Expand Your Research

More than likely you'll be able to find information about your topic in a number of different disciplines. If you're researching the role of women's clubs in the French Revolution, you will want to explore databases in history, feminist and gender studies, and women's studies.
