Emery A. Gunnin Architecture Library: Journals

Branch library for Art, Architecture, City & Regional Planning, Landscape Architecture, Construction, Real Estate Development, and Historic Preservation

The best journals & magazines in your subject...

Every research guide for programs located in Lee Hall has a Journal|Magazines tab, with links to the most relevant titles in that subject, plus a Find Articles tab, with links to article indexing databases that enable you to find specific articles in those journals.

Search for a journal in any format

When you already know the title

Use the Journals search page. Accurate title (or, in some cases, title acronym, such as JSAH)  required for this search box. If we have both the print and the e-version of a periodical, the record will let you choose between them. When both appear, the print is likely to be back issues.
When you don't know the title

To identify a journal in your area of interest:

  1. Go to the Clemson Libraries Catalog Advanced Search page
  2. Limit your search to @ClemsonLibraries (radio buttons above the search box).
  3. Select "Journals" from the Material Type dropdown menu on the right.
  4. Select either "Any field" or "Subject" as a field filter, depending on which you're more certain of. (Try the search both ways.)
  5. Subject searches are the most powerful and efficient, when you're browsing in your area of expertise, but they're also more demanding: Subjects are a controlled vocabulary, therefore need to be precise. Best option: toggle between "contains" and "is (exact)" depending on how certain you are. Use quotes around phrases. Example: "construction industry."
  6. Enter your term(s) in the search box. You can then toggle among other options: "Available online," "Peer reviewed," "Open Access"

To identify journals in your area of interest, whether Clemson subscribes or not:

  1. Go to the WorldCat catalog (the link is on the Gunnin Library homepage, beneath the search box)
  2. Select "Advanced search"
  3. Use the search boxes to enter keyword or subject terms (Click on the Scan indexicon to browse for already-indexed terms)
  4. Limit type to: Serial publications
  5. This will provide you with likely journal titles you can then use in all your other searches in the citation databases, in combination with your search terms.

When Clemson doesn't have the journal article you need...

Use full citation information to request your article via Resource Sharing.

If you need an entire journal issue rather than a single article (when there's a special themed issue, for example), select "New Request -- Book" in the left column of the request form and enter the required information. Indicate in the Notes section the specific issue, volume number, and date you need.
