Electronic Resources for Departmental Employees
Others must come to the Interior Library to use these databases, or contact a Reference Librarian for assistance.
|Due to budget reductions imposed as a result of sequestration, the Library will no longer be able to provide access to EBSCO's Science & Technology Collection, EBSCO Online's Environment Complete, and the National Technical Reports Library databases after April 29, 2013. We will also no longer provide access to Westlaw at the Library Reading Room's patron workstations. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.|
Find Electronic Journals By Title
To help you determine whether and where a needed journal is available online, we provide this complete, searchable alphabetical list of titles. If you're not sure where to find a journal online, try this list first.
The list combines the full-text journals and other periodicals in all the database services to which the Library has access. Also included are some single subscriptions as well as some journals freely available on the Internet. Most entries include coverage dates, and all entries have links directly to the journal.
Please direct your questions on database searching strategies to a Reference Librarian.
