SOUTHcat Catalog:

for books, videos, titles and years of subscribed journals, government documents and links to electronic books--all owned [or licensed] by the University of South Alabama. As with all databases, do not use a, an, or the at the beginning of titles and search for authors using last name first. Read the keyword requirements carefully.

Our Journal List: Full-Text Journals Listed by Title

This is the most useful utility for finding the specific journals we subscribe to--in which database--as a fulltext version--or on the library's periodical shelves. Search using the journal's title--not the article title.
