Electronic Resources at The Evergreen Library: Electronic Journals & Articles

This guide aims to bring together all the electronic resources (e-books, e-journals, databases, streaming media) and digital content available through The Evergreen State College Library.

Online Journals & Articles

This page will show you how to find online journals and articles through the library catalog and databases.

Finding an Article or Journal Online

Looking for a specific journal?

If you know the title of the journal you are looking for, try searching the EJournals A-Z in the catalog.

To search both print and online journals, search the library catalog.


Looking for a specific article?

Not every article owned by the library is indexed in our catalog. You may need to search for the journal title (see above) to locate it or you can try searching through Google Scholar, after connecting to the library (see below for instructions).


Not sure what you're looking for?

If you don't know the journal or article title and are researching a topic or subject area, try looking through our Database List. For the broadest search encompassing the most available full-text options, check out our popular databases such as EBSCO, JSTOR, ProQuest, GaleScienceDirect, or NewsBank.


Does Evergreen not have access to that?

You can always request articles from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan.
