Need help finding a specific journal or magazine? Here’s how!

Is there a journal or magazine you are interested in reading? Here’s how to see if we have it here at the Palomar College Library.

  • Use the List of Periodicals to see if we have the journal in print or in a database. You can search the list by title or ISSN, browse the alphabetical list of titles or browse by subject area. This will show the date range the library has and if it is available in print or in an online database.

If you are interested in a periodical we only have in print (especially if you don’t where or if it is indexed online) GoogleScholar is a handy tool. You can use the Advanced Search options to search articles by a specific author, or for topics within a specific periodical. You will not have online full-text access, but you can use the citation information to find the articles in the print collection.

If you have any questions about Palomar Library’s periodicals holdings, stop by the reference desk or use the Ask Us Now service to chat online with a librarian. For more information:
