The library subscribes to many thousands of journals in electronic format. Some of the journals are available under their own name from publishers and service providers, while the articles from others are embedded in searchable databases such as Academic OneFile and Lexis-Nexis Academic.
Irrespective of how the journals and their articles are provided, the library's service can help you and your students locate both journal titles and the articles contained within them. The advantage of linking via Find it! is that Find it! will always show what the library's current subscriptions are. Because electronic journal subscriptions change frequently, keeping your own hard links to their locations is not a good idea.
From Database Search Results
When search results in databases are displayed to users, those that are Find it! enabled will display the button near the end of the citation. The button will be hyperlinked to a menu that will tell where to find the full text for the article. When journals are available from more than one source, Find it! will list all the available options. Find it! will also provide links to the library catalog so that users can determine if print holdings are available.
From eLearning and Course Management Websites
Use the following form to generate a URL that can be used to access electronic journals from eLearning and other course management web pages. Enter the appropriate information and click on the Go button. Then copy the URL from the Find it! page and paste it into the course management web page.
Linking to Journal Titles
Enter the journal title in the appropriate box, click on the "Journal title" radio button, and click on the Go button. If you know only part of the title, select "Begins with" or "Contains" from the dropdown menu. If there are several titles with the same name, such as Business Week, enter the ISSN for the title you want. For a journal with the title Policy Sciences it will generate a URL that looks like this:
Note that this journal is available from two sources. Find it! will always show all the sources in which a given journal title or article may be found.
