Ebsco A-Z - "The Green Button"

It seems like such a simple question. Can I get Dance Magazine at the Library? What about The SciTech Lawyer?

There are several ways for you to get magazines at the Library. Sometimes you'll find a particular magazine at one branch but not at another. Sometimes none of the branches have print copies of the magazine, but you can access the magazine through one of our many library databases.

Luckily you can access a handy index to all of the Library's magazine content, whether it is in print at a library branch, or online through our online resources. The official name of this index is EBSCO A-Z, but all you need to remember is "the green button:" go to our website at www.pbclibrary.org, and look for the green button on the right side of the page that says Magazines and Newspapers. Click on that green button and you can start searching for the Library's magazines.

Type in Dance Magazine, and click on Search. You'll see that several branches have print copies. And you'll also see a list of online resources that you can access from the comfort of your recliner or work desk with your Library card. You can also find titles like Golf Magazine, Good Housekeeping, and Marie Claire, both in print at library branches and online in our library databases.

If you're looking for The SciTech Lawyer, you'll see that you won't find it in print at a branch, but you can still read it from your recliner in our online resource called Academic Onefile. A link from this page will bring you right to the database.

You can access thousands of print magazines and journals at our branches, and find thousands more online using our online resources. Remember the green button to see where you can find all of them!

To find the online magazine, you will need your library card number to access these and many other useful resources. Don't have a library card? Sign up now for a Temporary Research Access Code (TRAC) to immediately access most of the Library's electronic resources. Learn more about TRAC at http://edb.pbclibrary.org/TRAC/TRACFAQ.pdf.
