The dates tell you what issues of the journal are available.  The links go to our sources that have full-text articles from this journal.  Click the "Full text available" link to go to database and search for your article. 

If the journal you are looking for is in print form, then the journal will instead be listed with a library call number. All journals in print form are filed alphabetically on the first floor of the library.

If you are searching for a journal article or journal based on a citation, journal article citations usually look similar to this:

Authorname, A.B. (2008). "Title of article." Journal Name. Vol 25, issue 3, pages 47-58.

There is a lot of useful information here. You can search for the information based on the author's name, the title of the article, and the name of the journal. Additionally, the volume, issue, and page numbers help you find the correct article within an issue of a journal and help you verify you've found the correct article. 

You can search by any of these pieces of information (author, title, journal, etc...) by doing a quick search of the library catalog.
