For most subjects the best way to search for journal articles is to use Summon, the library's search engine. Summon searches across most of the journal databases that the library subscribes to. You will find a guide to using Summon here.

You may find references to articles through Summon that aren't available as full text (Summon will display the record as Citation Only).You can apply to obtain a copy of these articles using the Inter Library Loans service.

If you want to see whether the library subscribes to a particular journal online, the best place to look is on the A-Z of eJournal Titles page. 

The library subscribes to some print journals. You can use the library catalogue to see what titles are available.

If you need help searching for journal articles please visit the library Help Desk or arrange a tutorial with a librarian.
