1. Begin at the Library's Journals & Magazines list, found on the library’s homepage and on the Articles & Databases page.  Here’s a direct link:  Journal/magazine/newspaper list

2. In the "title begins with" box, search for the periodical name; In this example, we'll use Harvard Business Review.  Click "Search". 

3. The results show that the full-text of this business magazine is found in several library databases.  Since Business Source Complete has the most extensive coverage, click on that link.  Note: You may be prompted to log in with your last name and your 7-digit Webster ID number. Can't remember you ID number? Find your student ID here

4. Once you are in the database, there will be a list of the publication years available on the right side.   If you know the publication date, you may browse to the issue and article you need.

5. If you do not know the date that the article appeared, or you are looking for topical articles in Harvard Business Review (HBR), use the link "Search within this publication". 

6. Business Source Complete will post the journal name into the top box of the search form.  In the second box, enter some distinctive words or phrases from the article title (if you know it) or enter some keywords to search for articles on a topic. 

Hint: * An asterisk at the end of a key word searches for variant endings- manag* will find manage, management, manager, managing.

You can, of course, use the Journal & Magazine list to search for the full-text of articles from thousands of other periodicals in addition to Harvard Business Review!
