How to use eresources@cambridge: #9 Checking journal holdings

We have access to over 120,000 ejournals, but our access to these journals does not always include full access from volume 1 to present in our holdings.

Searching for journals in iDiscover or the ejournals search you will see a list of results with brief descriptions of each journal.

The date information in this short results screen record shows that the journal began being published in 2006 and does not include an end date.

Clicking on the ‘Online access’ link will open the journal for access on the EBSCO platform, but we are only offered volumes for the years 2007-2010.

The ‘Online access’ link will open a webpage from the first link listed alphabetically in the full iDiscover record.

If there is more than one link the holdings date range may be different for each. Checking these links may offer access to the journal via a different link.

For the ‘Oxford Journal’ we only have one link for access – the EBSCO link that led to the page shown above.

Clicking on the journal title from the short form record will open the full record and show the link/s and holdings information for the journal.

The date range for our holdings that are shown in the ‘View it’ box in the record show us that our access is limited to the years 2007 to 2010.

As no other links are available for online access it may be possible to find a print copy of the journal. If no print copy is available your local Inter-Library Loans or Document Delivery Service should be able to hold of a copy of the article.

Details of Inter-Library Loans and Document Delivery Services available to members of the University of Cambridge are available from the eresources pages.
