Q. How do you search articles from magazines in the bindery?
Firstly, thanks for your question.
In fact, we subscribe to The Econominst ...and by conducting a title keyword search for "the economist" in the Classic Catalogue (and limiting to location = periodicals) you will learn that the call number is Period HG 11 .E2 ... Latest issues are located in the periodical lounge on the library's main floor and older back issues are downstairs in bound periodical (same call number). When they are in Bindery, it means they've been sent to be bound and are temporarily out of the collection.
Now, if you are unsure of which edition published the article you are seeking, use a periodical index. Contents of the Economist are indexed in such database as Academic search complete (1990-present) , CBCA reference (1986-present (1992-present in full text)) and CPI.Q (1980 -present (1988-present in full text)).
As you see, CBCA and CPI.Q have the full text ...and so, if the article is relatively new, you'll be able to find an online version...and not have to wait for them to return from bindery.. If you really want the hard copy let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll ask when we can expect it to return.
If you need some help in using any of these databases let me know and I can walk you through them
