WRI 112/113: The Craft of Authenticity: Finding Articles

Guide for using the library for research successfully in Julianna Visco's writing seminar.



One can see a list of ALL electronic journals at Princeton here or by doing a title search in the library catalog. Alternatively, one can browse journals more visually and by subject using Princeton's instance of BrowZine. BrowZine allows one to save favorite titles to a Bookshelf, receive alerts when a new issues is published, and retain selected articles.

Craft Journal suggestions (specific titles)

Craft Research (2010-present) and The Journal of Modern Craft (2008-present) may be accessed/browsed via BrowZine (see above). See Art & Architecture Archive (database) under Database Basics tab for access to runs of American Craft  (1979-2005) and Craft Horizons (1941-79), etc. For more current issues of American Craft, see the catalog record for the title. The Index to Craft Journals was published in Australia and covered 1979-88: do a title search for it in the library catalog. Some issues are available online via the HathiTrust. One can search for names of craftspeople, articles and information on specific subjects appearing in 50+ craft journals. Lastly, only four issues of American Craft Inquiry were published. You can access some articles online (full contents are visible), or else place requests for others via Article Express.


Article Express

Request book chapters and journal/newspaper articles from books and serial titles not available at Princeton by visiting this page under the LIBRARY SERVICES menu. While we are not officially obtaining content from outside libraries at the moment due to COVID-19, if you are desperate, it doesn't hurt to put in a request.
