Using the Library Catalog
Use the Library Search Tool
Many of our electronic journals can simply be located from our Library homepage. This engine will search across many research databases and help you to hone in on key resources for your research.
Use Our e-Journals A-Z List to Locate a specific Journal
This automated list can point the user to the full text of articles while they're in a database with the "GET IT" button. The list keeps track of electronic journals even if the full text is buried in a general literature database like ProQuest or LexisNexis.
Don't Forget the Reference Librarian
If at any time you want us to double check to see if we have access to a particular journal, please don't hesitate to ask.
