How to Find Federal Government Periodical Articles
Government periodical articles are not listed in the online catalog. InfoKat, the library catalog, lists the titles of federal government periodicals but does not list the individual articles published in the periodicals.
- Use an electronic periodical index and search by subject or keyword to find articles. Examples of this kind of periodical index/database are:
- Government Periodicals Index
- Academic Search Complete (EBSCOhost) covers a wide range of subjects.
- Medline covers medicine.
- Agricola covers agriculture.
A periodical index search produces a list of citations: sample citation:
- Article title: Involving the public in improving air quality
- Author: Kathy Daniel, Federal Highway Administration
- Journal title: Public Roads, v.63, no.1, Jan./Feb., 1999.
