Find a specific journal

Search for the title of the journal using the BOOK tab in the Library catalogue, NewCat +.

Use quotation marks to make your search more specific. Example: "Journal of academic ethics"

If the library has the journal, the catalogue record for the journal should be at the top of the results list.
It will include details of the years that are available in print, or links to the years available through UON databases.

Found an article from a journal we don't have?

If UON doesn't have access to the article you want, request it from another library using our Get It Service.

For more details go to our Borrowing from other libraries webpage.

Journal databases provide search hints and tips in the help menu - start there if you aren't familiar with the database
