From the library home page, go to Journal Holdings tab next to the SuperSearch box.  You can search for the name of the journal (or magazine or newspaper) you are looking for by title or browse through the Journals by Title list.

From there, find the appropriate journal (or magazine or newspaper), then select a database link next to a date range listed.  

This should bring you to a database with the journal you are looking for.  In most databases you will have an option to search within the journal.  Choose a link that say something like "Search within this publication" or "Search in this title".

Some databases also let you search a journal by typing JN "Journal Name" and you can search what you want in another search box.  For example you would type JN "American Journal of Public Health" and obesity in a separate box.
