Journal articles and online resources

Journal articles

Library Search| is a fast and intuitive library search system which enables you to search a wide range of Library content, including journal articles, all in one place.

If you are conducting research on a topic and do not have a reading list, we recommend starting with Library Search |and then moving on to searching individual databases.

  • However, remember that Library Search does not search every journal database available in the Library and some will need to be searched individually.
  • Library Search does not include all the newspaper articles, law reports or government publications. These need to be searched on separate databases.
