The following databases hosted by Western Libraries should suffice in your research, but if not, we have plenty of others. Look in the Subject or Alphabetical List area of the Library's homepage.
I recommend using the Advanced Search option whenever available. It will allow you to retrieve the most relevant results.
General newspapers, state, regional, national, global
For searching popular magazines (as well as scholarly journals) Academic Search Complete is the best general database. Use the pull down menu to search for specific magazine titles. You can also limit to feature articles.
For more specialized academic journal databases search databases by Subject.
Search the Library Catalog and Summit. If you are doing a general search use the Keyword or Advanced Keyword options on the Library Homepage.
These resources can help you find publications where you can publish your work. Most of these are located in the Reference Collection (located to the right of the Reference Desk -- if you need help finding them, ask!)
The Writers Market (Ref PN 161 W83)
Literary Market Place (Ref PN 161 L5)
International Literary Market Place (Ref PN 161 I5)
Ulrichs Online (Very extensive database for all serial publications)
Editor & Publisher International Newspaper Data Book (Ref PN 4700 E4 - 2 volumes - Dailies and Weeklies)
