If you have an article citation (i.e. author, title, periodical, volume, issue, year, etc.), then you can check our library's subscriptions for it using the Find a Journal database.  Here's how:

1.  On the library's homepage, look under Search the Library and click the Journals tab.

Find a Journal

2.  Enter the periodical title (that is, the journal magazine or newspaper title -- not the article title) and click "search." 

  • If you are prompted to log in, enter your APUS ID and password.
  • Not sure which title is the periodical title?  Click here.

3.  If the periodical is in our holdings, you will see a link to one or more databases, along with dates for which full text is available.  Click the link that includes the date that your article was published (a new window will open).

4.  Browse to the appropriate date/volume/issue and scroll to your article. Or, use the database's search box to search for the article by title.

5.  Click the article’s full text link to view, print and/or save it.

If the article you need is not available, then you are welcome to request it via interlibrary loan (ILL)
