Recommended databases for current news:
Using the "FindIt" button in a database to locate the full text
When you find an interesting article in a database, if the database doesn't provide full-text of the article, and you find the button, click on it. A software will start to search all the databases that CU subscribes. If it finds databases that contain the full-text article, it will show you in a new window with the databases listed there. Click the database on the new window, it will bring you to the full-text article.
Using "e-Journal Finder" and Catalog to locate the full text if you have the citation of an article
If you have the citation of an article, first look for the journal title where the article was published. Then from our libraries home page click on "Journal Title Search", put in the journal title to see whether there are any databases that contains the full text for that journal. If so, pay attention to the year range of "full text available" to make sure the database includes the year in which the article was published. If the journal is not available electronically, search the journal title in Catalog to see whether CU or other consortium libraries have this journal in print. If that is the case you can make a Consortium Loan request to obtain the article. If the article you need is not available in the Catholic University Libraries or in any other consortium libraries, you can make an Interlibrary Loan request.
Start your research as soon as possible. If you need to obtain an article from within the WRLC Consortium it takes between three to five business days to be filled. An Interlibrary Loan request may take a few weeks.
