Factiva is one of the few library databases that does not provide article nor title level links from the Journals & Magazine List. Here's how to search if the article you seek is available in Factiva:
- Search the Library's Journals & Magazines List for the title of the periodical in which your article was published.
- IF Factiva includes the publication year of the article you want, click the database title, Factiva, and log in if prompted.
(For steps 3 to 8, see the image below.)
- On the Factiva search form, expand the source field and type in the periodical name, e.g. New York Times
- Be sure to uncheck the box that reads 'Exclude Discontinued Sources'.
- For the widest possible results, select the periodical title that includes 'All sources' to search both print and digital content for that title.
- In the 'Free Text Search' form, type in some distinctive words from the title of the article that you seek. **Note that different editions may have different article titles (and sometimes, dates) for the same or similar articles; You may have better luck searching by keywords that describe the content of the article and limiting with a date range.
- Click search.
- If your search retrieves too many results, click 'Modify search' button to return to the search form where you may add a date limit to your search.
