If we have the journal, you'll find information on whether it is electronically or in print. If it's electronic, you may have to pick from among multiple databases to access the journal subscription.
Make sure the database includes the date range you need.
Not all databases look the same, but usually you'll find a way to browse the journal by year and volume.
If it's in print or on microfilm, come to the library in Glenside.

For instance, use Google, but also try Google Scholar.
