Have you been asked to find a specific article?

Search the library catalogue for the journal title (don't search by article title) and click on the title once you locate it. The record will indicate if the journal is available in print in the library or online and will display the years covered by our subscription - make sure the article you require is within the specified date range. To access an online journal, click on the blue hyperlink located under the journal information. You may be asked to login with your usual username and password at this point.

If you wish to search for e-journals only, you can use the e-journals portal instead of the library catalogue.

Have a look at our screencast video which shows you how to access journals via the library catalogue and e-journals portal.



Off-campus access: for some resources (especially ebooks) there may be some additional steps required to gain access. Look at the Access Notes under the resources links on the Databases A-Z for instructions. For example, if you are having trouble accessing a MyiLibrary ebook via the library catalogue, look at the access notes given with MyiLibrary on the A-Z.
