Finding Where a Periodical Is Indexed

Most periodicals do not contain indexes to their contents, though each issue may have a table of contents.  To determine which databases or printed indexes cover a particular periodical title consult the resources below.  It may also be useful to request assistance from a Reference Librarian since the large number of databases and indexes, the dates of coverage, and periodical title changes can make this process quite difficult.

Online Resources
Journal Finder
Use Journal Finder to locate which databases contain the full text and then search those databases.
In most cases the information found here will allow you to determine if your periodical is indexed in these databases even though Colgate provides the database from another source.
Print Resources

These sources are all kept in Reference at Case Library.
