Don't forget about PRINT Indexes!

There are many online article databases available.  When you search these databases, you are not "on the web" but searching a resource purchased by the library and available only to the Cal State LA community.

But remember . . . not all indexes
are available online . . .

. . . and most of the online article databases (indexes) only go back 20 years or so.  That's
why the library also owns many print indexes,
good for researching older materials.  For
example, the New York Times print index
goes all the way back to 1851!
