Project Muse Database

Posted in Monica Bacian at 3:53 am by groupone

Using the Project Muse database to look up journals was very easy to do. First of all, the database gives you two choices to be able to find an article. If you click on Search, you can actually search for any article using the name of the article, the name of the author or even the subject. If you happen to know the name of the journal or journals that have the articles you need, you can just click on Journals. This link will take you to another page where you can browse through different journal titles until you find the one you are looking for. Who knows? You might even find other journals that could be useful to your research.

            I decided to search for some articles myself to prove just how easy it was. I couldn’t think of subject to search under, so I decided to search under my favorite anthropology teacher, Lorena Madrigal. I knew that she writes many articles for different journals. I came up with one article from a journal called Human Biology. Her article is called “Epidemic Cycles in Agricultural Populations: A Cross-Cultural Study.”  I was able to access the full pdf file where I could read the article in its entirety.

Two articles on J.K. Rowling:

Nel, Philip. “Is There a Text in This Advertising Campaign?: Literature, Marketing and Harry Potter.” The Lion and the Unicorn. 29.2 (2005): 236-267.

Pennigton, John. “From Elfland to Hogwarts, or the Aesthetic Trouble with Harry Potter.” The Lion and the Unicorn. 26.1 (2002): 78-97.
