A guide to library resources for anyone in the School of Communication.

Find Databases, Journals, and Articles

Many online journals are available to current members of the ISU community. Use the Journals search to find titles.

If you are looking for a specific article, enter the article title in the Everything or Journal Articles search. If it is not included in the search results, you can select the "Expand Beyond Milner Library" checkbox (to the left of the results) to find a record and request a copy from Interlibrary Loan.

Keep in mind that not all journals, magazines and newspapers are available with full text online.

If you cannot find online access, contact us and we will help you find a print copy or request the item through Interlibrary loan.

How do I request articles not available at Milner Library?

Use the Interlibrary Loan service to request articles not available at Milner Library. Login with your ULID and password to submit a request.  When you use the Find It button in a database and Milner does not have online access or a print copy of an article, the Find It page provides an Interlibrary Loan link that populates the article citation into the Interlibrary Loan request form.
