How to find journals at the library


The library have approximately 380 printed journals and about 37,000 electronic ones. But how do you find them?

The electronic journals dominate and the library purchase material packages from different vendors. Via Summon you can search for articles using keywords such as the title of the article. Would you rather search for the journal title, do so under Search Journals. Then it looks like this:


This search shows through which suppliers we have access to the journal and the years we access. Choose for example Emerald Journals. Suddenly you find yourself in the journal, and can choose which year and which volume you want to look at or use the searchbox to look for a topic in this particular journal. Here the situation is slightly different depending on which provider we have the magazine in, the interface varies but usually you can always click on the year and volume number to get further.


The printed journals is found on both the 2nd floor (main floor) and the 1st.

Capture03The printed magazine’s placement can be found via the library website for information search – search journals. It can look like this in the directory where you see where a printed magazine is located. Then it’s just to locate it in the magazine (locate the shelf B: 104 in this case). Good luck!
