Points to remember

  • Not all journals are in electronic format so check the CAT to see if we have the journal in print
  • Not all journals have all years in electronic format
  • Always use The CAT to search for your journal title. If you go directly to the publisher or society, you will not be able to access the full text articles. (with rare exceptions)
  • Different publishers will have slightly different displays but the search boxes and selection of year, volume and issue are always listed. In addition, the full text links can sometimes be difficult to find and may also be called full text
  • For additional help, call the Engineering Library at 865 3451
