Full-Text Online 
Journal Guide 

If you'd like to know which electronic source (Academic Index, Wilson Select via First Search, JSTOR, etc.) indexes a particular journal, or if you're wondering whether a journal is available online in full-text, Jointly Administered Knowledge Environment (JAKE) can help.

JAKE is a database that contains information about various online indexes. You can search by journal title to determine:

which online resource indexes a 
particular journal

which online resource contains full  text of a particular journal

which years are covered by the online  resource

full titles of journals from abbrevia- tions (e.g., art bull, or j struct le)

JAKE, developed by Yale's medical library, is available with UF-specific information at http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/jake/.

United States Newspaper Program/Florida 

The National Endowment for the Humanities invited grant applications from the 50 states to inventory, microfilm and catalog into a national database, American newspapers in their borders. The University of Florida Libraries joined the project in 1993 and elected to identify primarily Florida-based titles.

The emphasis of the project is upon 19th and 20th century newspapers, with particular emphasis upon ethnic and African-American titles. These had small press runs and dismal survival rates.

As staff collected survey information, some of it went directly into cataloging records for the national OCLC database. Now supplementary information from the in-house database is available on the Internet. Searchers can look by newspaper titles, city or county of publication, and often by ranges of years. 

Holdings are either at UF, at cooperating libraries, or out of state. The microfilms are housed in the micro-text room on the first floor of Library West. Searching for UF's holdings may be done via WEBLuis at http://www.uflib.ufl.edu [Search UF Catalog]. 

The variant index which identifies holdings elsewhere is at http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/fnp/. Broader information about the project with many valuable Internet links to related Florida newspaper sites or information sources at at http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/flnews/.
