Common Reading : Journals and Databases

Journals and Databases


Begin research on related topics for this year's Common Reading using "oral history," "walking," and "communication" as keywords in the Full Text Journal Listing's title search. The titles below are four examples.

  • Oral History Review
  • Backpacker
  • Scientific American
  • Journal of Sports Science and Medicine
  • Sports Illustrated




Journals, unfortunately, do not offer easy subject searching; databases do. Below are listed a few of the databases which may provide information for topics discussed or used in the Common Reading.
