One of the library’s summer projects was an expanded and redesigned website! Along with an updated look, new sections have been added including pages for Students, Faculty, the AV department, and Archives & Special Collections. We are still smoothing out kinks here and there, but your feedback is always appreciated. If you have any questions about the new website, please contact us! We hope it makes finding what you need a little easier.

With the end of the semester fast approaching, we’d like to take the opportunity to point out a few new (and old) tips when searching for journals and journal articles in our electronic resources.
List of Journals/Periodicals in the Library Catalog
You can now easily pull up a full list of every periodical the library currently subscribes to as well as those in our bound journals and storage sections. From our library homepage, choose Subject from the search drop-down menu and type periodicals in the search box.
This will return a list containing the subject term corresponding to periodicals:
Clicking on Periodicals will bring up a full, alphabetical list of all the journal titles in the library’s catalog:
Checking a Journal/Periodical’s Availability Online
Interested to see if any of the library’s journals are indexed and/or are available in Full Text through our electronic periodical databases like EBSCO or JSTOR?
Just click on the journal title to bring up its full record page. If it is indexed in any of our databases there will be a Connect to link underneath the Title and Publication info.
Keep in mind that the detailed record page also shows what physical volumes the library has, as well as the most recent issue we’ve received (if we are currently subscribed).
Clicking on the Connect to link will open up the journal record page for that particular periodical database. (Note: if you’re accessing this page from off campus you may need to sign into the database. See the library’s Moodle page for off-campus login info)
The Bibliographic Records field indicates what date range this particular journal has been indexed in the database (i.e. information like article title, author, publication, etc. available and searchable).
The Full Text field will indicate what date range the database has the full text of the article available for you to read or download immediately. Please note, not every title has full text availability.
To begin searching for your topic within the journal, click on the blue Search within this publication link towards the top of the page, or you can also browse the individual issues by using the All issues menu on the right.
Have questions about searching for journals or journal articles? See our Library Instruction page for additional tutorials, or stop by the library. We can also be contacted via email or by phone: 215-965-4054.

Whether you’re traveling for spring break or holed up studying — you can visit the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) online through the Google Art Project! In honor of International Women’s day this past weekend, the NMWA made 59 pieces from their collection available online as high-resolution images. Not only can you zoom into an artwork to see vivid detail, you can use Google’s “museum view” feature to zoom out and move around three floors of the museum.
Also in honor of International Women’s day, the Google Cultural Institute partnered with museums (including NMWA), archives, and cultural groups from around the world to launch “Women in Culture,” a special collection of online exhibitions highlighting achievements by women artists, leaders, and innovators.
