The electronic journals subscribed to by the library are listed on Library Search and a separate A-Z list.

To find an e-journal by title, go to Library Search.  Near the top of the screen select e-journals A-Z (FindIt). A search window appears that allows you to look for the title you want.

If you get the message “Sorry, your request returned no results” then the Library does not subscribe to that e-journal. Use Library Search to see if we have print copies available.

If you do find the title, click on the 'find it' symbol (it resembles an S in a circle) to the right hand side. This produces another window  which shows you the availability of the e-journal – e.g. “Available from 2001 vol: 29 issue: 3”. It is important to check the availability, as the Library may not subscribe to the issue of the journal that you want.

Click on 'Go'  to access the e-journal website.

(It is best not to fill in the Year-Volume-Issue-Start Page fields. You can search for the exact item on the website itself.)

Using Library Search directly to find an e-journal, type the title you want into the search box and once you have identified your title, click on the 'View Online' or 'Find It' link.  A separate window will open up and from this you can link to the resource by clicking on the word 'Go'.

Please note that these instructions are only applicable to staff and students of Newcastle University. Other users are not eligible to access e-journals (with very few exceptions).
