Walker Library generally has access to more online journal and magazine articles than it does print versions of those articles.  If you have an assignment where the professor asks you not to use "online" or "Internet" sources, here are some suggestions for handling this:

  1. Check with your professor about the requirements of the assignment. Does the professor mean that you are not allowed to use any sources from the open Web, but you ARE allowed to use online articles from scholarly journals available through the Library's online databases?
  2. If you confirm you cannot use online Library databases to find your resources, search Journal Locator to see if we have print versions of the journals.
  3. Note the location of the journal in the record and go to the shelves on the 1st floor listed to find it. If you have trouble locating the print journal, then check at the Reference Desk (1st floor) for help. 

Here is an example of a search from Journal Locator for print issues.

Below is an example of a print journal record:


  • Scan articles using any of the Digital Media Studio scanners or the scanner on the 1st floor near the Tech Student Desk. You can save the file to a flash drive,save to your S drive or email it to yourself.
