You can find thousands of magazine articles online in our databases.
(We also have some magazines in our physical print collections in the library. Our library staff can direct your to the print collections in the library on your campus.)
To browse various magazines online, try Pressreader! You can create an account with your TCC credentials and then read thousands of newspapers and magazines online via your web browser. There are also Pressreader apps available for IOS and Android!
To find online magazine articles on a particular topic, follow these instructions:
1. From the library's homepage, go to the Articles & Databases.
2. Select a database such as Academic Search Premier, which allows you sort the results to include ONLY magazine articles.
3. Type a word or "phrase" into the search box, select the Full Text limiter, and click on search.
Tip: To restrict your results to only magazine articles, look for the checkbox next to "Magazines" on the left side of the screen in the filter options.
Some databases on the A-Z List, such as JSTOR and ScienceDirect, only include scholarly/peer-reviewed journals in the database, so these are not good places to look for magazine articles.
