Answer

To find out if AU has electronic full text access to a journal or newspaper, go to the library's homepage, under RESEARCH, and click on FIND JOURNALS.

Type the title of the journal (not the title of the article) in the search box and click on SEARCH.  The system will return a list of databases that include the journal.  Each database may include different years, so be sure to look at the dates included.  Click on the link that has the issue you need.

Not all journals are in electronic format.  Also search the catalog.  Type the title in the search box and select "journal title" from the pull down menu.  If the journal is in storage, click on the red REQUEST button, complete the form and submit your request.  A copy of the article will be scanned and posted to your My Library Account.

For assistance, please contact a Reference Librarian via chat, email, phone or a vist to the Reference Desk.
