Finding Journals

Library Skills

Finding Journals

The Library has a large range of journals that are available for you to access and use as a student, researcher or staff member of RGU.

Most of the time you will be using databases to search for a full range of journal articles on a topic but sometimes you may want to find out if we have a specific journal title, what years we have, if it is online or in print and how you can access it.


Finding E-Journals Using LibrarySearch

You can use the LibrarySearch tool to find electronic journals. There are two ways of doing this:

Using Journal Search

From LibrarySearch page, locate the Journal Search link.

You will be taken to a dedicated journal search page for searching for journal titles or ISSN.

If we have a subscription to the journal you searched for, you'll find it here. To find out what years are available and to access the journal, click on available online.

Using the Refining Options

You can also search for the journal via the Library Homepage.

Instead of looking through all the results, you can use the filters on the left-hand side to narrow down to Journals.

If we have a subscription to it, you will find the journal in the results list, and be able to access it.
