Full text journal information in the Catalog!
Good news! Users of the JHU Libraries Catalog will now see a list of full text options, when relevant, for journal/newspaper titles.
Not only do you get a link to the full text publishers, you also see the date ranges for the full text. Note that you should continue to use the FindIt link
on the Library's home page for journal titles that you do not find listed in the catalog.
You can search in the catalog by journal title or ISSN (journal number). In those unpleasant cases where you get multiple hits for the same title (e.g. 7 hits for Economist
) the full text links will show up in each
of those records. The Library staff dislikes multiple hits for the same title as much as our users; we're working to solve that problem.
Due to the complexity of the database, Find It
is not perfect. If you have any trouble, feel free to contact a librarian
to see if we can get you the material you need.

"Should we get a myspace page?"
Did you know that Johns Hopkins' Sheridan Libraries* have a blog? They do, and it's much like ours, except maybe fancier...
Librarians are not great with pithy blog names, but we think The Sheridan Libraries Blog
is a good read, especially for finding out about cool resources we're guessing most library users do not
know they have access to via JHU. For an example, see the post above about MSE Library's collection of graphic novels.
Libraries are run by real people, not computers. The SAIS Library staff know many of the librarians working on the Sheridan blog and we're happy to see their personalities shine through.
___________________________________________* You might ask, "What are the Sheridan Libraries?" They comprise 4 different JHU libraries / locations in Baltimore. SAIS Library is not a part of the Sheridan Libraries, but they support us in crucial ways and we frequently work on projects together.
