Searching for Journals in Fusion

To find journal articles, we recommend you start by searching in the databases, where you can search across multiple journal titles simultaneously.

To search for specific ISU print and electronic journal subscriptions, we recommend the following:

  1. Go to the ISU Library homepage at
  2. On the ISU Library homepage, click Fusion Plus Advanced.
  3. Search for the journal title as a Title and the term "periodicals" as a Subject.

    Title: new york times
    Subject: periodicals

  4. Examine all retrieved records for your journal or magazine. Read more detail about a journal by clicking on the title of the record. Look at the information under "Holdings" to see if ISU has the date you need.
  5. Write down the Call Number and the Location (Reference, ISU Gov Docs, Stacks, etc.).
  6. In the ISU Library building, go to the shelving location and use the call number to find the correct journal.
  7. Photocopy the article using the copiers on the First Floor.

Students taking all distance learning classes (and, therefore, are assumed to not have easy access to ISU's campus) during a semester can request that Interlibrary Loan send them physical materials owned by ISU's Cunningham Memorial Library. Some materials, such as DVDs and reference materials, do not qualify.

All Print Library Journals and Magazines except "Current Periodicals" are now located in the library Basement.
