Why use journals

How can I find journal articles on my topic?

The most simple way to find journal articles is to search mySearch. It gives you an easy, yet powerful means of accessing our information resources through a single search. It searches across our library catalogues and many of the Library databases, ejournals and other external services that the Library subscribes to. 

The alternative is to search an individual subject specific database. These will search a smaller number of articles than mySearch, but are subject specific and will give you more focussed results. Click on the 'Specialist Resources' tab for a complete listing.  

How to access e-resources from off campus

Finding print journals

If you need access to a print journal, search for it on the Library catalogue. The record on the catalogue will provide you with details of what years we have in stock. All our print journals are held on the ground floor of the library in the rolling stacks. 

Finding e-journals

All of our e-journals can be accessed via the E-journals finder.
