Locating Journal, Magazine, and Newspaper Articles

The best way to find magazine, newspaper, and journal articles is to use one (or more) of the databases provided by the Library. There are several databases which would be helpful. Business Source Complete is an excellent database for research in the culinary and hospitality industries. It is always your go-to resource.  Academic Search Complete and MasterFile Complete are also good choices.


Helpful Hints

Limit to “full text” for immediate access to your articles.

Remember that most articles, which are not full text in the database, can still be obtained for little or no cost. (See Interlibrary Loan section below)

To reduce the number of articles retrieved, add limits to your search.

Limit by publication date to retrieve the most current info.

Limit by subject term BUT be careful that your term is a valid subject heading in the database.

Limit document type to ARTICLE. Note: Not all databases offer this option.

Ask a librarian for help. Contact the staff at the Reference desk, call

910-362-7034 or send an e-mail to the reference desk.


Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Sometimes the Library does not own the magazine or journal you need and the article(s) are not available online.  We can obtain most articles from another library at little or no cost. Ask at the Reference Desk for assistance or fill out an online ILL request form at
