Healey Library

at the University of Massachusetts Boston



The library databases and indexes are an organized and searchable collection of records, which include articles, books, journals, magazines, newspapers and more. This is the best place to search for journal articles on a topic. 


Search for ebooks in the Healey Library Catalog by selecting eBooks from the drop down menu under the basic search box. To search a specific collection, see the list of ebook collections. For information about using ebooks, see ebook databases and devices.


Search the Full Text Finder for journal, magazine and newspaper publications by title (not the article title) to see if Healey Library has a subscription.  You can also search by periodical subject or ISSN. Be sure to check the available dates, some e-journals have limited coverage or full text delay (embargo). See our FAQ for instructions on how to search for the full text of an article.  

Streaming Video
