Locating Periodicals through Ritter
Search All Journal Titles
Search the library holdings to find out if we have access to a periodical title. If we have electronic access you can retrieve an HTML or PDF of the pages.
On the library homepage, navigate to Articles and Databases then Periodical Lists where you can search by title or discipline. You can also search Periodicals in the Quick Search widget on the homepage. Look for your title in the result list and then look to see which sites contain the date range you require.
Articles should be free. If you encounter a paywall--DO NOT PAY! If you have more than one option for full text choose another. Reliable sources are OhioLINK EJC and JSTOR for consistent free PDF's. Contact a Reference librarian or Circulation staff for assistance if you have questions.
JSTOR Open and Extended Content
During the current COVID-19 crisis, JSTOR and our participating publishers are making additional content freely available to participating institutions where students have been displaced.
You may find articles in publications to which Ritter does not subscribe. As staffing allows, we will attempt to obtain PDF copies of articles for our patrons.
