Search Current Multi-Subject Databases for Magazine Articles

Search the following general databases individually for current articles published in popular magazines on many different topics, including Prohibition, as well as other topics.  (Because these databases also contain newspaper and journal articles, you will need to limit to "Magazines" to find only magazine articles, or limit to "Newspapers" to retrieve only newspapers, and remove any journal articles from your search results in these databases.)  

Because of subscriber restrictions, these tools will only be available when you are searching computers that are on our campus wireless and hardwired networks.

Tips for Searching (about Prohibition):

  • Search for Prohibition era or Prohibition and 18th amendment
  • To limit to full-text articles, check the "full text" limit.
  • To limit to magazine articles only, use the "Magazines" limit.  But be aware that this limit is removed every time you change some aspect of your search (add or remove terms, change dates, etc.).  So you will need to be vigilant and reapply the Magazines limit if it disappears!
