One of the best tools for locating periodicals is online catalogs. See the page devoted to National Bibliography in Slovenia for a description of the Slovene online catalogs. Please remember that sources pertaining to Yugoslavia are relevant for Slovene periodicals. Article citations also appear in these catalogs. This is discussed below in the section for periodical indexes.
The digital catalog portal for the Slovenian Bibliography has incorporated bibliographic records for books, periodicals, printed music scores, sound recordings, cartographic materials, pictorial materials, and articles. Important to this page are the articles and the periodicals accessible.
The bibliography of periodical publications offers bibliographic records for newspapers, magazines, journals and newsletters. The publications are browsable by frequency of publication, date of publication and title. These date back to 1995.
Articles are browsable by publication, publication year, and more. These are articles included in the Slovenian Bibliography and they date back to 1858. Below is a record from this website.

U of I Library lacks: for periodicals 1988-1989
The Slovene national bibliography which began in 1945 has traced Slovene periodical titles since its inception. From 1945-1950 the periodicals are listed in the annual volume among the books and other materials, but beginning with 1951 periodicals received their own section within the annual volume of the bibliography. In 1978 the national bibliography divided into four separate volumes: A/serial publications, B/books, C/index of articles, D/other non-book items. (For information about the other sections of the bibliography see the annotation on the page devoted to National Bibliography for Slovenia). Since 1978 Series A. has been issued annually as an independent serial in its own right. It presents Slovene serials alphabetically by title. The entries show which issues of which titles appeared in a given year as well as providing publisher information, ISSN, etc. The bibliography excludes serials that are published in non-paper formats such as CD-ROM, microfilm, etc. There are indexes for names and subjects. See the entry on the left for the monthly Nasa zena which appeared in the 1998 volume.

International & Area Studies Reference 015.4973 SL6342 1978-1979 [articles section only]
The Slovene national bibliography began in 1945, but the coverage of articles did not begin until 1951. The article citations appeared in their own section within the annual volume of the national bibliography until 1978 when it divided into four separate volumes: A/serial publications, B/books, C/index of articles, D/other non-book items. The articles section ceased publishing in a printed format with the 1978-1979 volume and became available in an online format beginning with 1990 via the Slovenian online catalogs described elsewhere in this course. That means there is a gap in coverage of articles from Slovene periodicals for 1980-1989. Citations are arranged by subject classification with a name index to facilitate access. The section on biography is interesting as it furnishes citations for articles about specific individuals under their name. See the entry on the right that appeared in the 1978-1979 as an example for Oskar Kogoj.
