You can access geography articles through Hunter's electronic databases, electronic journals, and in library regular (hardcopy) collections. For the up to date list of library on-line journals go to Hunter College Libraries (

electronic Databases

From the left side menu, select Databases to search articles in electronic databases. For human geography, include into your search such databases as Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, Geobase, Econlist, JSTOR, ERIC, etc. You can also include specialized databases to conduct in-depth search in a particular area of interest. In this case, you can search by author, title, keywords, etc. in the journals included in the databases.


GeoBase, a searchable citation database, combines Human Geography Abstracts, Physical Geography Abstracts, Geomechanics Abstracts, Ecological Abstracts, International Development Abstracts, and Geological Abstracts. Full text might be available if the library is subscribed to a particular journal (see below).

Electronic Journals

To access directly the electronic journals to which the library is subscribed, click on Electronic Journals in the left side menu of the Hunter College Libraries page. This will open an alphabetical list of all electronic journals. The drawback of most these subscriptions (it has to do with price that the library pays) is that the most recent issues (going back one year) are not available electronically). This means that the most up to date articles are available only in hard copy journals.

Hardcopy journals

Many journals are still received in hard copy. You can find out whether the library holds a particular journal with an indication of the subscription format (electronic or paper) by going to CUNY+ and clicking a table Journal Title search. 

hardcopy ABSTRACTS

In print, Hunter Library receives subscriptions to Sage Urban Studies Abstracts, Human Geography Abstracts and Physical Geography Abstracts
