How can I search for journal articles?

If you know the journal title: first try a "journal title" search in the Library catalogue. You may get more than one result, depending on whether we have the print version, the online version, or both. Check what years/volumes we have:

  • Print: see the details in red under "Library holds".
  • Electronic: see the dates in the links under "Web access".


If you want to find articles on a specific topic, or by a specific author: you can search in one or more of the specialist databases we subscribe to.

 Please ask your Information Librarian if you have any questions about finding articles or using these databases.
