The simple answer to your question is "Yes." The easiest way to determine if the full-text of a particular journal title is available electronically to current UNA students and faculty is to consult the "Periodicals Holdings." This list is linked from the library's main webpage, <http://www.una.edu/library>, in the section labeled "Find Articles" where the second link listed is "Periodicals Holdings." When you click into Periodicals Holdings you can then conduct a search for the periodical title in question, in this case Teaching Exceptional Children or Exceptional Children. A search conducted for either of these titles lists a number of databases in which the full-text of the journal is available to the UNA community. For example, the full-text for articles within Teaching Exceptional Chidren is currently available online from 1997 to the present through the Proquest Legacy Central database. By clicking on the link to that database you can then locate the full-text of the article you seek if the date you need falls within the date coverage for the journal title in the available electronic resources.
Conducting a similar search for the journal title Exceptional Children also indicates full-text for the publication is available in a number of the electronic databases to which UNA provides access. This access includes the Expanded Academic ASAP database where you can currently find the full-text for Exceptional Children from 1988 through a month ago.
You will be required to enter your UNAPortal username and password in order to use the databases for which UNA provides access. For more information on accessing electronic library resources from remote locations please see: <http://www.una.edu/library/orientation/distance/offcampus.html>.
