A Word about Article Databases:
Index to Jewish Periodicals
Once you have found the article(s) you want to use, you will need to have access to the journal in which it appears. In online databases, most journals will be available in electronic format -- PDF or HTM -- or through UCe-Links.
UCe-Links will guide you to an electronic version of the article or direct you to do a search in the UCSB Online catalog or Melvyl for the actual print version if an electronic version is not available.
Here is another source which might help you identify which print journals and issues are held by various libraries (mostly in North America)
