NOTE:  You will  use the

Academic Search Complete database link above 

to access the Atlantic !!!!

VMI's access to the Atlantic is through one of Preston Library's databases. You will not peruse the Atlantic page by page like a a print copy. You will search for .PDF articles in Academic Search Complete database.

To search Academic Search Complete database for articles in the Atlantic:

  • Type 1072-7825 in the first search box. This is not a typical search, but it is the most reliable way.
    • 1072-7825 is the numeric address (International Standard Serial Number or ISSN) for the Atlantic. Many publications in Academic Search Complete have the same or a similar title. If you use the ISSN, you'll retrieve all and only articles from the Atlantic.

- OR -

  • Type atlantic in the first search box > on the left-hand side, scroll to Publication, and Limit to atlantic. You want the Atlantic title with about 8,500 articles. There are multiple resources with the same or similar title, so make sure you have the correct one! Do not select atlantic (01606506) or atlantic magazine (00046795)
  • The cool thing is that you can then limit by topic. For example: type military or soldiers or armed forces In the second box to find all articles (about 300) from the Atlantic, sorted by relevancy.


Most reliable search, limited by topic: 

Less reliable, but works...

Then limit to atlantic, around 8,400 articles
