Q. Can I access magazines and newspapers full-text on the Library's web page?
Thousands of full-text magazines, journals, and newspaper articles are available through the Alabama Virtual Library accessible from home and work at www.avl.lib.al.us. There are many databases under the "View All Resources" link aimed at different grades and specific areas of interest. Two large datases within the AVL that provide a wide variety of magazine types are MasterFile Premier and Infotrac One File. They include full-text articles from a variety of fields and subjects and both databases include advanced searching options that allow you to focus in on particualr topics. There is some overlap of titles between the two datases but most of the titles are unique to each database so it's best to search both to get full coverage. With these two sources you'll have access to huge selection of full-text articles often going back for years.
