EconLit Tips

EconLit is the main index to Economics journal literature and is created by the American Economic Association.  A search in this database of citations allows you to search across the contents of 100s of journals at once.

Guidance for searching EconLit
Tips for making the most of your search in this key index of Economic scholarly literature.

Some of the JEL subject descriptors of particular use to this seminar are:

  • C-Mathematical and Quantitative Methods
  • H-Public Economics
  • K-Law and Economics
  • O-Economic Development
  • Q-Environmental and Ecological Economics

Remember that both searching and browsing are worthwhile strategies. Spend some time with keywords and some time browsing the contents of specific journals or articles assigned specific subject headings.

Interpreting "Find It" Results (2020)

Scholarly journals are going to be found, in most cases, either online or in print.

Searching Catalyst and using the Find It button are the best ways to determine what kind of subscription the library has and how to get your hands (or eyes, as the case may be) on it.

Find It Button

Following are explanations of the different results you'll get using the Find It button.

 

Instant Electronic Access

When you click the "Find It!" button, you will be taken to a record for the article in Catalyst. That record will tell you whether this is available electronically, in print, both, or neither. If it is available, you will see a message "Online Access" near the top of the page.

Scrolling down will show you the electronic options for that article...

Follow a link and you'll be taken to the article.

 

Print Journals

If the library subscribes in print, you need to find the call number for the journal in Catalyst. Then go to the moving stacks on the 3rd floor of the library where the journals are. Catalyst shows the call number so you know where to find it on 3rd Libe.

If the print copy is only at St. Olaf, log in to Catalyst, then click the St. Olaf Library entry to expand it. Find the issue you need, then click the Request link to have the journal sent over to Carleton, where you can pick it up at the Circulation Desk.

Carleton Doesn't Subscribe

If Carleton doesn't subscribe to the journal for the issue you need, make a request through Interlibrary Loan.
