What is a Publication Search?
Use Publication Search to search for a single edition, volume, or issue of a particular publication and retrieve all its available documents. Types of publications you can search for may include magazines, journals, newspapers, reference works, and other source materials, depending on the database(s) you are searching.
Publication Search is helpful when you wish to view all available content within a single edition/volume/issue. For example:
- you want to read all articles in a periodical's anniversary or special topic issue (this type of search is available when the database(s) you are searching contain magazine and/or journal content)
- you are interested in assessing the overall tone and balance of a newspaper by viewing multiple, diverse content from an entire edition, including front page news, letters to the editor, opinion columns, feature stories, reviews, etc. (this type of search is available when the database(s) you are searching contain newspaper content)
- you want to look-up several entries, all in the same volume of an encyclopedia or directory (this type of search is available when the database(s) you are searching contain reference content)
Note: Note that while every effort has been made to include all documents for the selected edition/volume/issue, the availability of documents depends on the rights and permissions negotiated.
