How do I access books and articles online?
To find articles:
To access published journals in the Online Library click Find Articles (or Click Here) on the library homepage. The new page that you're brought to, Find Articles and More, contains a list of all of the databases found in the library. It is arranged alphabetically and you will be able to read a summary of each database. After clicking on the database link, you will then have the option to select peer reviewed or scholarly articles which means that your search will be limited to just peer reviewed journals and will exclude newspapers and wire feeds for example. I often will go to ProQuest Central (a multidisciplinary database) at the top of the list.
Alternatively, if there is a certain publication you wanted to examine, on the Find Articles and More page select the first database listed, A-Z of Online Journal Titles and then type in the title of the journal in the title box.
To find books:
To access electronic books within the Online Library (similarly to finding articles) click on Find Books (or Click Here) which will take you to the Find Books & More page, this page contains a list of all the databases electronic books are available from. Each database presents electronic books which are completely readable online.
