READINGS

The readings for our course are located across several different magazines, journals, and newspapers, in addition to those compiled in our book Emerging. UNE subscribes to these publications, so the best way to access them is via the UNE library catalog. The texts not included in our reader are listed below, along with instructions for how to access them.

There are many ways to find these sources, for example, by doing a simple title search or using the “Proquest Newspaper” database (available via Databases by Title), or searching through our Full Text Journals. I describe a catalog search below, but you should explore various ways. If you run into trouble, you can always ask a librarian.

  1. Go to the library home page
  2. Search the catalog for the journal or newspaper title e.g. New York Times or Nation. NOTE: If you are not on campus, you will need to log into the server. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password as soon as you try to access subscription-only items. Use the same name and password you use to log into U-Online or your campus email.
  3. For New York Times, you will find 14 catalog entries. Scroll down to the “electronic resource” version and enter the site.
  4. You’ll find several different databases that cover different date ranges. I recommend using Proquest in this case, but, again, you can try out others.
  5.  Once you are “in” the publication, use the date of publication (for magazine and newspaper articles) or the volume or date (for journals) to narrow your search.
  6. When you find the right issue, search for the title or author.
  7. You’ll see several options for printing, saving, and/or emailing your results. I recommend printing for use in class in addition to one of the other methods.
