Finding articles & journals

Articles and other writings about animation can be found in many publications. To find these resources, look at the section in this Research Guide on Journals & magazines on television. Our collection does not include a magazine or journal title which looks exclusively at cartoons on  television. You can use Film & Television Literature Index to find articles or use the Summon box below. However, to see if there are specific titles, you can search in Worldcat. Use a subject search with the terms "animated television programs" and "periodicals."

Keeping up with the journal literature

Want an easy way to keep up with the journal literature in Television? And you use a mobile device? You can install the BrowZine app and create a custom Bookshelf of your favorite journal titles. Then you will get the Table of Contents (ToCs) of your favorite journals automatically delivered to you when they become available. Once you have the ToC's you can download and read the articles you want.

You can get the app from the App Store or Google Play.

Don't own or use a mobile device? You can still use BrowZine! It's now available in a web version. You can get to it here. The web version works the same way as the app version. Find the journals you like, create a custom Bookshelf, get ToCs and read the articles you want.
