Journal Title Searching now via Hagerty Library Catalog

Journal Title Searching now via Library Catalog

The libraries have now implemented "one-stop shopping" for journal titles in the Library Catalog. Records for electronic journals have been added to the catalog, allowing use of the full range of catalog search options for both print and online journals.

"Journal Search" links throughout the library web site will now point to a search page that offers searching of our complete journal collection by title, keyword or ISSN (International Standard Serial Number. For browsing convenience, links are also provided to the alphabetical lists of electronic journals.

Search results will include both print and electronic versions of a journal title, depending on what is included in our collection. Electronic Journal listings (labelled with "[Electronic Resource]") will link to an SFX menu, listing the available electronic sources.
