Finding journal articles
The easiest way to find journal articles is to do a keyword search for your topic in LibrarySearch.
We also have a range of databases to help you find journal articles and other relevant material for your subject (they may not all be included in LibrarySearch).
Some databases only give you the reference, but most provide a 'Full text' button if we have a subscription to the article. All our databases are listed in the A-Z of e-resources.
