Ulrichsweb.com, the electronic version of the Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory, is now available through UNISTAR, the Library’s online catalog. Use this resource to obtain bibliographic and publisher information about more than 300,000 journals, determine journals in subject areas of interest, and identify refereed journals. This tool can be used to identify periodicals - scholarly, trade, general - covering particular disciplines or industries.
