Improved Access to Online Journals

During the winter break, the libraries implemented new technology which we hope will improve your access to electronic resources. SFX is used by many academic libraries for providing access to full-text articles in journals.

Journal Holdings
The former E-Journals list now points to all our journal holdings - print and online. So, if a journal has both  print and online holdings, you will be able to find all the holdings for a journal. You'll notice that the former E-Journals link on the library homepage is now called "Journal Titles."

Link Resolver
The icon you click to link to full-text from a database is now "powered" by SFX and will hopefully offer more stable access to our full-text journals at the citation level.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions about this.
