8.2 How to find journal articles
You can find articles in journals by using databases and ejournal collections.
- provide access to the content of journals within broad or specific subjects areas
- also index collections of essays, conference papers, websites, book reviews and research reports
- sometimes provide full-text versions of articles
- allow researchers to identify and locate key journals in their subject areas
However, not all publications indexed are held in the Library. You will need to check the Library's catalogue to see if we subscribe to them.
Ejournals are similar to databases but more often lead to the full-text of an article. You can use ejournals and databases from any computer connected to the Internet. If using a commercial ISP (Internet Service Provider) like BigPond or OptusNet, you will need to logon with your unikey.
The link to the Library's databases and electronic resources is on the Homepage.
