Economics: Finding Articles

Article Locator

What does Article Locator@La Salle do?

Article Locator is intended to help you locate whether La Salle University Library has a subscription to an article which you have found by using an index. If the article is available fulltext online, a link to either the article or the journal is provided. If not available online, you can click on a link to find out if La Salle University library has the article in print. If La Salle University Library does not have the article, you have the option to request an Interlibrary Loan.

When you get your results in a database search look for either the words “Article Locator@La Salle" OR the magnifying glass icon:

In some cases you will need to follow a link which says “Looking for an Article?” or “Find a Copy” Some database vendors allow us to change this wording and others do not.

JSTOR is a collection of full-text, keyword-searchable academic journals dating back to the late 17th century. Full text is available up to the last 3 - 5 years for most titles (Moving Wall). JSTOR allows browsing by title or by discipline(s) , and full text searching of individual titles or the entire collection. Disciplines covered include Economics.

Finding Periodicals

Although it is best to use the Article Locator to find what periodicals (i.e. journals, magazines, newspapers)  we have and whether we have them online or in print, you can also use the  e-Journal Portal.  If the journal is more than 10 years old, we may have it in print - then check the Library Catalog (below)

The e-Journal Portal lists all the periodicals to which the Connelly Library has electronic access.  The information in the e-Journal Portal is what the Article Locator searches when it is trying to make a link.  More information about the e-Journal Portal

To search our print periodical holdings in the catalog, just type in the title of periodical (not the title of the article) here.  These will be older issues of journals only.

Opinion Journals

We have access to the full archives of  three major opinion journals.  You can search them separately or together: ( Choose General/News as a subject to search all three at once.)

The Nation 1865-present

The New Republic 1914-present

National Review 1955-present
