Find a Journal, Magazine , or Newspaper by Title

Periodicals (magazines, journals, and newspapers) are available in many different formats through Montgomery College Library.  A single title may be available in more than one format: in print, and/or electronically. 

To find out whether the MC Library subscribes to a specific journal or a magazine title, and how to access it:

  • Start at the MC Library's home page:
  • Select the link Find Journals by Title or Subject or go to
  • Type the title of the journal, magazine, or newspaper (e.g., Rolling Stone) -- not the article title -- in the search box. Click Search.
  • The results will show a list of all of the ways that you can access the journal, and for which dates. You may see a link to a database or the name of one of the MC Library campus locations.
