Finding journals in the library

Once you have a citation:

Follow the HTML or PDF link to the article full text in the database - then read, download, or print OR

Use the FIND IT button found in many of the databases AND/OR

Use the Ejournal/Journal link on the libraries home page and search by the name of the journal or magazine AND

If the journal is not available in print on online at Wooster, the article may be requested from another library through Illiad  AND/OR

    Mathematics Periodicals

    Scholarly journals are usually considered the most important primary source of information in science. The three major functions of scientific communication are establishing intellectual property, evaluating work through the peer-review process and serving as a vehicle for disseminating information. A few of the many magazines and journals of interest to students of mathematics include:

    *JSTOR is a digital archive of important scholarly journals in many discplines. You may view a list of mathematics journals available through JSTOR at their site.
