Can I access an onine data base for The Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature through the public library? If so, how?
We do not have the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature available online, but we do have many other indexes to magazine and newspaper articles available.
Here is a list of online resources that can help you find magazine, journal, and newspaper articles. Often, these have the full text of the article as well, meaning the entire article is available online.
You can also try Research Pro which lets you search many of these resources at the same time. You will need to login with your library card number and either your first or last name to use these resources.
