Campus Library FAQ: Do I have access to this journal?

Journal access

UW Libraries offers access to journals both in print and online. To see how a journal can be accessed, it is easiest if you know the journal title.


1. Start by locating the UW Libraries Search tool on the Campus Library home page. Type the journal's full title, surrounded by quotes into the search bar. Then click Search.



2. Once you locate the correct journal in the result list, you can identify if the journal is available online, in print at UW Libraries, or if the journal is at a Summit (non-UW) library.

Tip: Similar to the image above, it is possible that you'll find multiple results for the same journal. Each location (online, print, and Summit library copies) can be listed as a separate result.
 

3. To access or locate a journal, click the tab labeled "Online Access" or "Availability & Request Options."

The Online Access tab provides a list of databases that will redirect you to the journal online.

Tip: You will be prompted to login with your UW NetID and password to view these options. 


Availability & Request Options Tab - provides either (a.) location information for the print journal at UW Libraries, or (b.) an option to request the journal from a Summit (non-UW) library. 

(a.)
Tip: You can use the "Request volume/part via Summit" option if UW Libraries does not have the exact volume/issue you need.


(b.)
