  1. Wait a second…Hold the phone! Why is this title only available through June 2009? Shouldn’t this title be available NOW???

  2. Current issues are available in print – we just received January 2011.

    The journal is available online through the current issue on LexisNexis, however, some students do not find that database as easy to use as, say, EBSCO or Gale. Hence the mention of it being available through June 2009 in other databases.

    Hope this helps!
