Recommended Library & Information Science Databases

Suggested LIS Journals

UNT's Libraries provide access to thousands of journals.  Below are only a small number of the journal titles offered relating to Library and Information Sciences.

Using Find Articles

 

If you have a particular article you are trying to find, the Find Articles tool is an excellent option for quickly locating the article. Here is a quick tutorial on using this tool. For a complete tutorial, see the Find Articles Workshop classpage.

  • Go to the Library homepage. Notice that the Online Articles tab is already selected.

  • Click on Advanced Search. This will take you to the Find Articles search page.

  •  Fill in the information you have on the article (author, title, volume, issue, etc.) and select Search.

If your article is not retrieved, double check your search for spelling errors. One little mistake and your article will not be retrieved!

 

What is Peer Review?

A peer reviewed article is an article that has been subjected to a process of critical evaluation by experts on the subject to determine the quality, relevance and appropriateness of an article before it is published. This ensures that the articles published in a journal represent the best scholarship in that field.

If you are not sure if a journal is peer reviewed, you can turn to Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory.

 
The Referee Shirt icon indicates the journal is refereed or peer reviewed.

 

Tips When Searching for Articles

Begin by going to the Databases tab on the library home page and choosing a database in the alphabetical list. I've listed some recommended databases here.

If you find that the article you are looking for is not available online, don't be too concerned. Not everything is available electronically.  With the title, issue number, year, and page numbers in hand, check out the UNT Library Catalog. Do a journal title search and check to see if our library holds a print copy. If not, you can put in a request from another library using our Interlibrary Loan ILLiad system.
