Subject-specific Journals

The journals that we feature on this page are available through Alvernia's Library. This is just a sampling of journals in the subject area; there are many more journals in most subjects. We feature peer-reviewed journals when possible. 

Each link connects to the main landing page for the journal. Use the "Search within this Publication" link to look for articles in the journal that include your topic keyword(s). On the right side of most landing pages, you can browse the journal by year and volume. This is useful if you are looking for a specific article from the publication and know the article's publication date. 

Ask a Librarian if you need help! Librarians are available in person, over chat, virtually by appointment, or at library.calendar@alvernia.edu

How to Request a Book

Can't find the book you need?  There are several options for requesting an item.

  1. Before requesting a book, check the Library Catalog to make sure the library does not have a print or electronic copy of the title.
  2. If Alvernia does not have a print or digital copy of the book, use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to request it.
  3. Providing the title, author, and publication date will help the library locate the correct book. If you do not have a full citation for it, searching the title under Books in WorldCat may help you locate a more complete record to fully populate the ILL request.
  4. Books are delivered to the Franco Library through the mail. You will be notified to pick up your book when it arrives. Special arrangements can be made for pickup at the Philadelphia or Schuylkill Centers.
