Children’s Magazines Available Online

Did you know you can access juvenile magazines through the library’s online database subscriptions?

Well, you can!

Did you know that these magazines are great lesson planning resources?

Well, they are!

You can get to Scholastic News, Ranger Rick, National Geographic Kids, Sports Illustrated for Kids and many more titles too.

If you know the title of the magazine that you want to browse, you can get to it by going to the library’s home page (ul.bgsu.edu). With the Summon tab active in the search area, click on “Journals by Title,” and on the next page, next to “Title begins with,” input the title you’d like to browse. If you are off campus you will have to input your credentials to get to the content. From the list of sources for the content, click on the one that has the date range that appeals to you. On the far right side is a list of the available issues by year. Click through to the issue you are interested in and browse away.

For lesson planning, you can search within a database to see if there are articles related to the subject you want to teach. There are tons of ways to search, but one way to just limit to juvenile content would be to search over one or all of the following databases: Primary Search (content geared to really young readers), Middle Search Plus (content geared to middle school aged kids), or MAS Ultra (content geared to high school students). To get to a particular database, from the library home page (ul.bgsu.edu) with the Summon tab active in the search area, click on “All Databases,” then select the initial letter of the database from the “Databases A-Z” section, scroll down to the database you want and click on the word “Connect” at the end of the title. If you are off campus you will have to input your credentials to get to the content. Once you are in the database, input your search terms and see what you find!
