Find articles

Use databases to locate articles from periodicals (magazines, journals or newspapers)

The articles found in our periodical databases are all PRINT based; the database is simply an electronic tool that allows you to access print material faster. Also note that some information is:

  • full text: electronic version of the article is included (look for "full-text;" or PDF and HTML icons)
  • not full text: you must find a print copy of the article; use OCAD U Periodicals A - Z to see if we have the title you need in our collection
