  • Search the Library Catalogue - The catalogue is a search tool for items the library owns, both print and digital. It searches print books, e-books, print and e-journals, government documents, maps, microforms, music & recordings, etc. Please note that it cannot search for individual journal articles.

Journal Articles

  • Just getting started? Use USearch to search the entire library collection. Tip:Select Advanced Search to set material type to Articles.
  • Use the Database A to Z list to find the database you are looking for or to discover a database for your subject area. Databases bring together journal articles that focus on a single subjet area.

  • Know which e-journal you are looking for? Browse or search for e-journals by title or ISSN

  • Know which article you need to find? Use the Citation Finder to check if the article is available online though the library catalogue.
