  • Use the Locate tab to select a publisher or package name (e.g. Elsevier Science Direct, JSTOR, Oxford University Press, etc.). If Smith subscribes only to selected titles from a publisher, those are the e-journals you'll see listed.

Why do I see "For earlier/later years, see journal history" for some titles, but not for others? What will I see when I click there?

This link apears when there are one or more related titles. Click on the link and scroll down in the pop-up window to the Journal History section. Related titles include:

  • Earlier/Later titles (title changes) - This can be helpful when you remember the older name for a journal, but not the current one (or vice versa). For example:
    • The Atlantic Monthly, published 1993+, was called The Atlantic from 1981-1992, and prior to that was called The Atlantic Monthly. The related title information allows you to access these earlier/later titles if available online.
  • Supplements - For example, the related title information for The Atlantic notes that is has a supplement called Atlantic Presents America's Museums. Conversely, if you look at the related title information for Atlantic Presents America's Museums, it notes that it is a supplement to The Atlantic.
  • Related editions - For example, for Newsweek, it lists Newsweek's International Edition, Newsweek en español, etc.

Note: The pop-up window containing the Journal History section is the same as the one that appears when you click on more info  (see next section for more detail).
